At my recent DSP class, I showed the attendees ways to get the best out of their pretty papers. Here is one of the projects, made using In Color DSP and Tailored Tag Punch shapes.
This quick and simple card is made by cutting shapes from the In Color DSP with a punch or dies. You then arrange them onto the cardstock in a pattern. The white gaps between the shapes create clean lines.
By using a Whisper White basecard and then a layer that co-ordinates with one of the colours, it brings everything together.
The key to this project is working out where to put your sentiment and to lay it in place, without gluing at the very start. My sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set and stamped in Magenta Madness to co-ordinate with the DSP.
Place the other shapes around it to make pattern you want. Then, when you are happy, start sticking everything down. You can be really frugal with your DSP on these projects as you can use the same shape for for several different pieces. Can you see how one of the Bumblebee shapes has been used? Don’t forget to fill any little gaps that are left, mine are at the top.
This is a great card for teenagers. Make it with DSP or cardstock in lots of different shapes and colours. You could add ribbon, twine or extra embellishments too. Let your imagination go wild!
