Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!
A lot of Goodies on the list!!! Check out the last day of the sale HERE.
Now for some eye candy….
I had fun making this cute Foldover Designer Series Paper card.
A little history on the designing of this…I was playing around with folding my cardstock back on the front as I have done before for something different and adding a strip of DSP to the inside but then thought I wanted to showcase this absolutely gorgeous DSP more.
You know how it is with DSP, you either hoard it and use little strips here and there or just go all out and use a *ouch* huge piece! So, I decided cut my 12″ x 12″ piece into (3) 4″ by 10-1/2″ pieces and do a fun fold of DSP on the front. But needed to give it some support so I mounted it on a 1/4 sheet of cardstock and made a place for the inside greeting! See how much of the DSP you can show off? It is a great use of the DSP- three cards from sheet!
Tip: cut the 1-1/2″ piece off first from the 12″ x 12″ to make it 10-1/2″.
That way, you have a 1-1/2″ x 12″ piece to use later on either a landscape of a portrait card:)
How about a video to show you how I did it?
The Petal Promenade DSP is just perfect for this fun fold! Here is one with Highland Heather and Petal Pink with the darker floral.
The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls work lovely with the colors in DSP pack, too!
Time to play with that DSP you have…if you make one…send me a pic or email…I love happy mail!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
