Last week I shared some cards I had made from scraps of Designer Series Paper, I rarely throw away my off-cuts and after I had seen some cards made by Pootles, a UK demonstrator, I was so glad I had not. She had taken some Designer Series Paper and cut it up to create a number of very pretty layered cards. The idea appealed to me very much – but instead of cutting up my DSP I used the scraps that were left over from previous projects. As a result I made about 2 dozen cards in total and although they followed the same formula every single one is different.
I set myself a couple of rules, the layering pieces of card must be the same color as the card base and each card needed to have 3 pieces of DSP.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Tranquil Tide Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Eastern Palace Specialty DSP
Because I used scraps it is difficult to list the sizes of each of the layers, however the Tranquil Tide layers are 1/4″ larger than the DSP giving an 1/8″ border all round.
The ‘Thank You’ is from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set stamped on Whisper White with Tranquil Tide ink then cut with 1″ circle punch and layered onto Tranquil Tide cut with 1 1/8 Scallop Circle Punch. On all the cards the 3rd layer was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals an each card had 3 rhinestones added for bling.
This set is using the Delightful Daisy DSP pack layered onto Tranquil Tide card.
I am so thrilled to have used up some of my scraps and to have a lovely stash of ‘thank-you cards’.
