Break out your DSP! ~ Diagonal Slash Cards

Earlier this year I made a promise to myself to use and not hoard my Designer Series Paper – I have a shared a number of cards over the last few months showing how I am making good on my promise.  As a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up products I am always looking for good ideas and I while I try not to copy exactly, I do try to put my own twist on them.  The cards I am sharing over the next couple of days are based on an idea from Patty Bennett, which is perfect for my on-going commitment to break out my DSP!



Card Base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Crumb Cake  card~ scored @ 4 1/4

DSP Layer: 4 x 4 Farmers Market  DSP~ you can get 9 card fronts from one 12 x 12 sheets!

Each piece of DSP was simply cut on the diagonal then attached to the card top and bottom of the base card with some snail adhesive, leaving the contrasting gap in the middle.

The embellishment greeting is from the Suite Sayings Stamp set stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink.


Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4 Hello Honey Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

The DSP is the flip side of the cards above ~ just need to take care the veggies are the right way up when you attach to the base card!  You can see the ‘slashes’ go in different directions to add a little visual contrast.

Once again the greeting is from the Suite Sayings set using Blackberry Bliss ink then cut with the Decorative Label punch.

I also used the silver and gold metallic thread on all 4 of the cards to add a little bling!

I have a small confession ~ I used this as an opportunity to use up some of the retiring ribbon 3/8 Crumb Cake Satin and 1/4 cotton Rich Razzleberry.
