Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a super cute and quick card featuring the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and the Peaceful Moments stamp set! This is the seventh and final card using up the last bit of DSP from the five sheets of Sunshine & Rainbows! Just because you may have a small piece or strip of DSP, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it up! Dies and embossing folders are great ways to use those smaller pieces, but pair them with cardstock and give your cards texture and a fun look!
The base layer for the card front is the two strips of leftover DSP that I just cut off the end, used the zig-zag Basic Border Die along the left side, and cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 3 ¼” x 4”, which is embossed with the dot folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders. Using my grid paper as a guide, line up the Pool Party cardstock at the 4” line, use liquid glue to adhere the two die-cut DSP strips as shown, and trim off the excess DSP so that you have a final piece measuring 4” x 5 ¼”:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Use the second largest Tailor Made Tags dies to die-cut from Misty Moonlight cardstock.
2. Cut a 1 1/7” x 2 ¾” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Misty Moonlight ink and use the confetti stamp from Hey Birthday Chick to stamp in Pool Party ink. This will be layered on the die-cut tag from above.
3. Use enough of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to tie around the tag hole.
Assemble the tag pieces together, adhere with dimensionals to the base layer cardstock/DSP, and adhere this completed base layer to a Magenta Madness 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 in Misty Moonlight ink and the confetti stamp in Pool Party ink:
For the coordinating envelope, just use the confetti stamp again to stamp in Pool Party ink in the corner as shown:
Such an easy and simple way to use up strips of DSP! A fun trick with the Tailor Made Tags Dies is you can make your own “layer” for a sentiment for the inside of the tag by cutting a piece of cardstock (or DSP) by using a ruler to measure just inside of the stitching. I could have used the next smaller tag die for the sentiment, but it was just a little too tight for the sentiment to fit, so I opted to cut a piece of cardstock for the inside of the tag instead!
