One Horse Sleigh DSP

Have you tried embossing on Designer Series Paper (DSP)?  I have been seeing lots of  samples popping up  and decided i needed to try it.


I thought using the Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder would look good on the One Horse Sleigh DSP.  The One Horse Sleigh DSP is an Online Exclusive and part of a larger suite of products,  One Horse Open Sleigh Collection.  What do you think?  I like the texture of the snowflakes on the DSP it makes the background a little more interesting.  I thought about adding the embossing to the front panel but decide it might be too much.  The front panel is also part of the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP.  The only stamping is the sentiment from the Merriest Trees stamp set.  The sentiment is on the smallest Stylish Shapes banner.  The Real Red ribbon is part of the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack.  The only sparkle comes from a retired Red Rhinestone.  If you don't have any in your stash you can always use a Real Red Stampin' Blend and color one of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  Do you see the tiny red border around the DSP?  If you look closely you will see that it is actually a piece of DSP.  It is the same piece that the focal point comes from.  Is there a cutout on the back layer of DSP that is hidden?  I will never tell.


Inside a sentiment from the Merriest Trees inked in Real Red along with a few snowflakes from the Beary Cute stamp set.   Here you can also see the red DSP a little better.

I love the way you used the dsp as a double focus on this card! And thanks for the idea to use dsp as a matting layer. That will reduce the thickness of the card. This is such a beautiful package of dsp and your card design features it well. I can't wait to experiment with other designs in this pack to make similar cards and to try embossing dsp as well.
