Self-designing card

Cute card? So easy! I recently offered a class for beginner stampers and this was one of our cards. The idea here is to let the DSP (designer series paper) do all the work.

Select a pretty DSP, then use a coordinating color of card stock as the base for the card. We used a shaped punch (or die on the Big Shot) to punch a hole in the DSP (or add a die cut to the front of the card). In this case it is the Fancy Flower Punch.  

Select your sentiment, the Perfect Pairs stamp set offers so many little sentiments that work perfectly for any occasion. Also stamped in the same coordinating color, then punched with a circle punch.

Then embellish: we used some teeny little flower punches AND rhinestones, wow! A bit of bakers twine for some more texture at the top of the card. I think this color might be retired, but there are lots of options available.

And your card has designed itself, easy peasy!

Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
