You NEED this designer paper! I was having fun with the sunlight this morning, and couldn’t resist showing you how it plays on this realistic wood. This is just one of many designs of the new, In Good Taste DSP. If you click on the question mark in my Product List below, you can see all of the designs.
I began by using the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the first layer from the DSP, followed by cutting a second, smaller piece from the middle.
The middle piece was layered with cardstock for thickness, and placed on Foam Adhesive Strips. These are twice the height of Dimensionals, and I wanted the added dimension.
Before attaching the middle, I tied a piece of Braided Linen Trim around it, finished with a knot. It’s more masculine than a bow, right?
TIP: It’s held in place with tape on the back, and Mini Dots on the front.
For some color, I used a Forever Flourishing Die to cut a sprig from Garden Green cardstock.
This is a birthday card from a group of people, so I chose the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, “from all of us.” It fit perfectly within the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I layered it for thickness, so it would be sturdy, hanging over the edge.
My layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.
