Hi friends! Back in October, on this post, I shared that I was making cards as a gift sets. I have a few more peachy cards for you.
For these cards, I created a One-Sheet Wonder (OSW) so I could make a variety of cards with a single sheet of 12 x 12 DSP. When I have such beautiful DSP as this Sweet as a Peach paper, I like to let it take center stage. Image stamping and die cutting make gorgeous cards, but there’s no need to feel obligated when the DSP, a sentiment & a few embellishments also make beautiful cards.
There are three sizes of cut DSP. My October cards were sized at 3.75” X 5” (or “Card 1”) so I won’t repeat those cards.
Below are two cards using “Card 2”, the 3” X 5” size. You could easily flip the orientation. Add ribbon & embellishments to complete the card.
Below are cards made using “Card 3”, the 4” X 4” size.
For variety, you can flip the orientation of the card base. I also mixed up the sentiments, added extra card stock & DSP, and coordinating embellishments and ribbon and twine. The cards will be different but set will still be cohesive.
I hope you have a chance to try my one sheet wonder. See you again on Wednesday . Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
I have three cards for you today with the same layout. I’ve been making cards to bundle as holiday gifts & I want to keep them quick & easy.
When I do these gift bundles, I pick a suite of products. This bundle is “You’re a Peach” as seen on page 60-61 of the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. I chose the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) Sweet as a Peach. Then I gathered coordinating cardstock, ink and embellishments. That’s what I love most about Stampin’ Up- it all coordinates perfectly.
The card base is 8.5 x 5.5 in Calypso Coral & Thick Basic White cardstock. The next layer is 5.25 x 4 in Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The DSP is cut at 3.75 x 5. With one sheet of 12×12 DSP, you will get six panels with a little left over that you can use to decorate the inside of your cards or save for your other cards.
I designed the sentiments a little different. I used layering circles dies, double oval punch and the Tailored Tag punch. The middle card has a strip of leftover DSP instead of ribbon.
I hope you like these quick & easy cards! Have a peachy day!
The card base is Calypso Coral topped with a layer Calypso Coral embossed with The Tasteful Textures EF. The vertical panel uses You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP) on Pale Papaya. By the way, many of our Stampin’ Up DSPs are 15% off.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Sweet as a Peach stamp set. White craft ink was stamped on Calypso Coral & White crinkled seam binding ribbon was tied through an oval hole created with the Detailed Trio punch.
To add a little interest right corners were rounded & punched with the Detailed Trio punch. Pale Papaya Loose Flowers were added.
