Hello Stampers! The way things are going – it looks like we will be keeping to ourselves for a while longer. This is a great time to catch up on all occasion cards or get ahead on your Christmas cards!
I have two cards to share today showing you how you can use our awesome two-sided DSP and show off both sides! It’s so easy I don’t know why I didn’t come across it sooner. The two samples I have today are very simple but you know you can jazz them up.
For this card I cut the base card at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ then cut off 3 1/4″ from the long side, scored at 4 1/4″. That’s how I got the left hand flap.
Then I cut my DSP at 4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered that onto the flap close to the fold so that the card would close nicely. Doing it this way I also had a little border on the right. Remember when you adhere your Whisper White piece for a sentiment be sure to line it up very close to the fold so that it doesn’t overlap that right hand border. Now you can show off both sides of your DSP.
I then decided to try something a bit different…
I cut my base card at 5 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ on the 5 1/2″ side. Then for the DSP I cut it at 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ so that I wouldn’t have a right hand border but rather a full front.
I rounded the two right hand corners on my inside Whisper White and then centered it since I did not need to worry about a right hand border.
Since these were just sample try-outs, I used retired DSP. Also, I just used white ribbon on the front border but you could also emboss that little flap or use the new “Borders Abound” stamp set or use a cut out from a die.
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets – Many Mates (New)
Ink – Night of Navy
Paper – Seaside Spray, Whisper White, Floral Boutique DSP (R)
Accessories – White Ribbon, Tasteful Labels Dies (New)
I think I’ll work up a really nice and highly decorated version with current DSP and products for next week’s post. I was pretty excited about this because I always felt badly covering up one side of our beautiful DSP.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this technique and you’ll try it.
Until my next post…Happy Stamping! Donna
