Ornate Garden Suite in Any Direction

Yesterday I showed you a project where the DSP did all the hard work. Today I’m sharing a card that can be used in any direction, either portrait or landscape. This is another project from my Pretty Paper Stash Buster Class.

Again is used the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, along with the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. These are both from the Ornate Garden Suite in the Annual Catalogue.

As the DSP is cut on the diagonal, with the stamping following the cut line, it makes it an any direction card. Obviously this only works if the pattern on your DSP is non-directional.

I have taken colours from the DSP as my basecard, layer and for the stamping. These are two In Colors, Terracotta Tile from last year, and the new Bumblebee.

When I’m using DSP, I tend to use colours from it. This way, I know they will co-ordinate. It also removes a lot of the thinking. The colours are helpfully listed on the back of the card sheet that comes in the pack, or you can find the details in the catalogue.

By cutting your DSP on the diagonal, you are doubling the number of cards you can make from your pack of 12 sheets. Using yesterday’s design, you can create 72 cards. With this design, you can make 144 – yes, one hundred and forty four!

Make sure you have your Paper Trimmer to hand as it will take a while to cut using a pencil, ruler and scissors.

Here are the landscape versions. Do you have a preference? I can’t decide which way up I prefer.
