Time for the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on Designer Series Paper! I will freely admit I have a paper problem. What is the problem? Well, I love it. Loving pretty paper has led me to be a hoarder, waiting for just the right project to use that pretty paper on. Sound familiar? Recently, I realized that hoarding and not using the paper is not really honoring it so I am working hard at changing this and becoming a person who uses and enjoys creating with the pretty paper.
The pretty paper I am focusing on is the Poinsettia Place DSP. This pack of paper features poinsettias, pine cones, and holly along with some simple patterns. Some of the images can be cut out using the Poinsettia dies. The colors in this pretty paper include Bumblebee, Garden Green, Old Olive, Real Red, Soft Suede, and Whisper White. This pack of pretty paper along with 14 others are part of the Designer Series Paper sale.
I made the popular slimline card. This size cards fit in a business envelopes. It is a fun size and something different. I used 2 different designs on the front of the card from the Poinsettia Place DSP pack and cut out some of the flowers from another sheet. One of the flowers (middle one) was cut out using the Poinsettia dies and the other 2 were fussy cut. Garden Green leaves and the Bumblebee buds were cut and embossed using the dies.
Yes, the slimline card is a great size to use as a gift holder of cash or a check. Here are the measurements you can use if you would like to make one of these cards.
- Whisper White card base 7" x 8-1/2" scored at 2-1/2", 6"
- DSP 2-3/8" x 8-3/8", 7/8" x 8-3/8"
