Since I hosted a paper share earlier last month it made me think a lot more about using it instead of saving it. I am not at all sure what I am saving it for, but I just see a sheet that I love and just cannot bring myself to cut into that pristine 12 x 12 piece of loveliness – so my resolution from now on is to use it!
Back in February I was invited to a shoe box swap – never done one before and was not at all sure what I had committed to…….. but once I had, I decided the focus of my card was to be Designer Series Paper! I shared a bunch of cards from other ‘stamper’s in earlier posts.
All 3 designs of paper are from the Birthday Bouquet pack and by the time I had prepped for 15 cards I had used 6 sheets out of the 12 in the pack – must admit I was jolly proud of myself!
Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Old Olive card~ scored @ 4 1/4
DSP Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 3
DSP Layer 2: 4 x 2 layered onto 4 1/4 x 2 1/4 Mossy Meadow Card
DSP Layer 3: 2 x 2 layered onto 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 Mossy Meadow Card
Greeting: 3 x 1 1/2 Whisper White card layered onto 3 1/4 x 1 3/4 Mossy Meadow Card.
You need a really good paper trimmer to be able to cut these pieces quickly and accurately – the Stampin’ Up! trimmer is the best one I have come across!
That cute bow embellishment is Bow Paper clip from the Occasions Catalog
Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the greeting which came from the Birthday Blooms Stamp set.
