Today’s card shows another use of the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP). I love this paper, and I am enjoying making simple cards to share with you.
As you can guess, this card was very quick and easy. In full disclosure, I meant to wrap the twine around the strip of paper, but I forgot and glued the strip. Oops! But it is also cute as a bow, don’t you think? In paper crafting there are no mistakes, just opportunities for creativity!
I made the card base with Cherry Cobbler card stock, and created a panel with a wide strip of DSP and a background layer of Garden Green card stock. The pieces are small enough that you could use scraps. The stamps for the sentiment and the strip of holiday flowers are from the Alpine Adventure set. I stamped both onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the “Christmas Greetings”, and Garden Green ink for the strip of flowers. Using a Cherry Cobbler marker, I colored each flower on the strip, and after cutting the white circle with a punch, I placed a small pearl jewel in each center. I cut a starburst layer out of scrap Cherry Cobbler card stock and glued it behind the stamped circle. I tied a Cherry Cobbler twine bow and adhered it to the circle with a glue dot, then adhered the circle to the strip. The bow slips a bit, but it will go back, and glue dots work wonders. LOL!
For the inside of the card, I cut a 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Whisper White card stock and with Garden Green ink, I stamped the small strip of holiday flowers in the lower left corner. i colored the flowers using the Cherry Cobbler marker – no pearls for the inside! CUTE!
The Alpine Adventure set is versatile with a lot of cute stamps. the snow shoe, ski and sled are prominent, and I plan to sue those, but I also found the two stamps that I used for this card. They are gems, and we do not want any stamp left behind!!
