Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is part 2 of my Oh So Ombre 6” x 6” DSP! Today’s card features the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the Dandy Garden Suite and the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder from the Fine Art Floral Suite! I will also show you an easy way to give your DSP a different cut to create four different cards from one 6” x 6” DSP! On top of all that, I will also show you some alternative versions for the same card, just changing a couple of products!
To start, the base layer is Petal Pink cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Painted Texture 3D EF:
Using the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP, you will cut this 6 “x 6” piece into four parts. First you will line up the opposite corners of the DSP on your trimmer at 1 ½” (the left side of the trimmer is marked at 1 ½” and the right side goes to 1 ½” – see arrows) from each side of the cutting/scoring line, make your cut. Then you will turn the whole sheet so the next set of opposite corners are lined up at 1 ½” from each side of the cutting/scoring line (keeping the cut cardstock evenly lined up), make your cut:
I then took those four cuts of DSP and lined them up along either the right or left side of the embossed base layer cardstock to decide the layout. Using Memento ink, use the flower and dragonflies stamps to stamp directly onto the DSP, and then use two of the 3mm Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the center of the two small flowers and one 5mm Champagne Rhinestone of the center of the large flower:
This is what the stamped DSP looks like when lined up back to the cuts:
Additionally, for the front you will need:
1. On Vellum cardstock, stamp one of the large dragonflies in Versamark ink, heat emboss with Silver Embossing Powder, and punch out with the coordinating Dragonflies Punch.
2. Using either Rococo Rose cardstock or Rococo Rose Foil Sheet from the Love You Always Foil Sheets, use the Dragonflies Punch to punch out another large dragonfly, this will be adhered under the embossed dragonfly above with glue dots.
3. Cut a 4 ½” piece of the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon.
Adhere the stamped DSP along the chosen side of the embossed cardstock base layer, adhere the layered embossed dragonfly with a mini dimensional, and adhere the piece of ribbon along the bottom of the embossed cardstock base layer, the ends are adhered to the backside. This completed piece is adhered to a Gray Granite cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden in Gray Granite ink, and stamp the dragonflies stamp in Rococo Rose or Gray Granite ink. Or you can do what I accidentally did, stamp first in Rococo Rose ink, then Gray Granite ink, and again in Gray Granite ink. While I liked the outcome of going from Rococo Rose to Rococo Rose/Gray Granite to Gray Granite, you will mix Rococo Rose into the Gray Granite stamp pad and may not want that:
Here are the other three cards, which you cannot really tell if it’s foil or cardstock under the embossed vellum, so it’s entirely up to you which you use:
To show you alternatives, on one card I changed up the embossing to White Embossing Powder, Frosted Epoxy Droplets, and Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. For the other alternative, I used Gold Embossing Powder, Gilded Gems, and Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon:
Whew! That’s a lot of cards, twelve in all since I used three sheets of the DSP!! Which is your favorite? I like the white embossed dragonfly with the tulle ribbon, it really makes the card “pop”!
