Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is my final card this week featuring the Flower & Field 12” x 12” DSP from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! Today’s card is actually something I’ve never done before, and that is use DSP for my card base! When DSP is so pretty, you just hate covering up the opposite side, so why not use this for your card?? Granted, you don’t make as many cards by doing this, which I made two cards and then two alternatives with the leftover DSP, but that’s why you have two sheets of each design!
For the card base, I used this design from the Flower & Field DSP, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White cardstock and punch out with the regular heart punch from Heart Punch Pack.
2. Use the scalloped heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack to punch out of Misty Moonlight cardstock, this will be layered under the above punched out sentiment piece.
3. From Just Jade cardstock, use the leaf and stem dies from Poppy Moments Dies to die-cut two of each.
4. From Shaded Spruce cardstock, use the detail leaf die and the two small bud leaves dies to die-cut two of each. For the detail leaf die, use some adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock before die-cutting out.
5. Use the flower bud die to die-cut one each from Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight cardstocks.
6. Cut a 6” piece of the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flower for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
Adhere the layered sentiment piece together, remove the adhesive backing to layer the leaf die-cuts, and use glue dots to adhere the flower buds as shown:
Place some adhesive on the back of the heart punched cardstock to adhere the leaves on the left and the flower buds on the right:
Adhere the ribbon across the middle of the card front, trimming off the excess, and use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece:
For the inside, cut a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” (horizontal) and a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5”, which will be adhered on top of the Misty Moonlight cardstock, and stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink:
So now you will have two 3 ½” x 5 ½” and one 1” x 12” pieces of DSP left over, so here is what I made with those pieces:
Cut the 1” strip of DSP at 3 ½”, cut a 1 ¼” x 3 ½” piece of Silver Foil, stamp the sentiment from Happy Thoughts in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White cardstock, use the scalloped Double Oval Punch to punch out, and punch out another scalloped oval from Seaside Spray cardstock, cutting in half and sniping just the end off of each side:
Adhere the Silver Foil strip under the DSP strip and adhere that on the DSP base layer as shown. The cut scalloped oval cardstock is adhered under the sentiment piece, with just the edges sticking out on the top and bottom, it is then adhered with dimensionals to the base layer DSP, and then I added three of the 5mm Opal Rounds as shown:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5” (horizontal), stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink, and cut the leftover 1” x 5” strip of DSP in half, adhering one of the strips along the bottom:
Don’t you just love both of these cards?? Even though I only made four cards (two of each), I used up every single piece of DSP! I just love the idea of using DSP for my card base, not sure why I haven’t done it before! This is a great alternative way of making your cards, it’s quick and easy, and you still use up your DSP!!
