Just like my card today, this post will also be a quick one! Temps are in the single digits this morning and of course, being one of the coldest days of January I am heading to school!! Isn’t that the way it works???!!!
Super Quick Measurement Details!
Today’s card is another easy way to use up some of your excess DSP you have in your supplies! Simply take a piece of DSP measuring 5 1/2 inches by 12 inches. Score at 4 inches and again at 8 inches. Fold the right panel in, then fold over the left panel. FYI – If the inside panel seems too large to fold in, cut 1/8 inch off the inside panel so the card front will lay flat!
Have You Tried Our Corner Rounding Punch Yet?
Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round all of the corners for the DSP card (I punched the corners while the card was folded but since DSP is much thinner than card stock it punched clean edges!) The two inside white panels measure 3 inches by 4 inches, the black mats measure 3 1/4 inches by 4 1/4 inches. The front panel was an extra scallop label I had from the Scalloped Labels Die set, and I simply cut a black mat 1/4 inch larger!
A Different Way to Add Ribbon To Your Card Front!
To add the ribbon to the front, cut an 8-10 inch piece of the Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon, folded it in half, slipped the front mats into the ribbon with the fold on the right, the open ends of ribbon on the left. Using black twine I simply tied the bow around the open end of the ribbon, and then pulled the ribbon tightly so the black twine bow is next to the mat edge. Snip the ends of the ribbon/twine, and adhere to the front panel with dimensionals. For a touch of bling, the champagne rhinestones are perfect!!
I’ll be back tomorrow to share tips for making treat packages out of that excessive DSP pile! We are going to get it under control this week! Until then, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!Product List
