Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Simply Elegant Specialty DSP

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project, I did something slightly different.

As you can see, the base card is black, something I don’t do very often. However, it was the perfect colour to coordinate with the beautiful Simply Elegant Specialty DSP in the background.

The DSP is black with copper and silver foiling. These pictures don’t do it justice, it’s stunning in the flesh. It truly is the star of this project.

A bow sits to the side. This is quickly made by wrapping a length of Basic Black from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack around some looped Metallic Mesh. The combination of black and silver coordinate with the DSP.

Finally, Champagne Rhinestones add an extra touch of sparkle.
