Happy Sunday, peeps! Hope your weekend is going well! Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess today and she has a fabulous sketch that is fun and easy:
I actually made two cards with this sketch, and I used the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP for them; these papers are so pretty, it's easy as pie to make a card in a snap. And I'll give you a little hint to help you with matching up those angled pieces! So here we go:
I used both sides of one selection of DSP; you can see the sketch looks great going either way! To get perfect cuts, cut two pieces of DSP (mine were 4" x 5 1/4"), then flip one over and stack them together. So you'll have two pieces but different sides will be facing up. Cut them at the angle you choose; I didn't use any mathematical calculations, I just stuck them in my cutter and went for it! Just make sure your pieces are stacked evenly! When you take them apart, you'll see how they match nicely....tada! Each card will have the same sketch but the patterns will be reversed. For both cards, I used a sentiment from Stitched All Around, stamped in Blushing Bride and diecut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits:
I cut a narrow strip of Sweet Sugar Plum glimmer paper to put behind the "seam" for a little glam! On the next card, I turned the sketch, and I also trimmed a wee bit off of each short edge of the DSP so that the glimmer paper would show through a little more:
These are so pretty, I didn't add a single thing more as an embellishment! I finished it by stamping the other large sentiment from the set on the inside!
The DT has come up with a fun array of samples to get your creative juices flowing! Please be sure to share yours with us as well at the Paper Players! You can check the DT samples out here:
