This DSP is SO Flippin' Pretty
I am in love with the HAND-PENNED Designer Series Paper (DSP). I have trouble deciding which side of the paper to use on my cards, so I created this card using a layout that shows off both sides at once. And even better, this gorgeous DSP is currently on sale for the month of July 2021! I added some of the PENNED FLOWERS dies to complete the focal point. Keep reading for some tips I learned when designing this card.
Lay out your squares so that any directional patterns will not be turned wrong when the scored the corners are folded. Don't worry about the patterns that have an all over pattern with flowers going many directions. (I cut my squares at 1-3/4" [4.4 cm]).
Turn your DSP squares diagonally so that they form a diamond on your trimmer (or scoring tool). And line them up precisely and so that you can score evenly at 3/4" [2 cm].
Be very sure you are using the scoring blade, and not the cutting blade on your trimmer. 😊
Flip over the DSP at the score line and glue down the corner to show both sides of the beautiful paper. (This is important to keep the corners folded).
For my card base I decided to use the coordinating HAND-PENNED Memories & More Cards and Envelopes. They are so perfect with this DSP and make your cards look so sharp with the printed envelopes. Also, a beautiful card deserves a beautiful inside.
