I work a few weeks ahead, always (well, almost always!) and projects usually end up here on my blog a few weeks after they have been made. I am also usually quite organised (I am a planner lover, and just bought myself a new diary….. such a stationary geek!) so cards sit in a nice neat pile on my desk until they are featured on my blog…. except that this card was made and immediately sent, and therefore never got chance to sit in the blog pile, and as such has been forgotten about!
I love Designer Series Paper…. but struggle to use it on cards (Sound familiar?!). So I thought I would share some of my tips and tricks to using Designer Series Paper with you today:
- Cut it….. seriously, its easier to use once you have cut it (you can always buy more…. I like the ‘one to cut, and one to stroke’ idea!)
- Grab the coordinating pack of Card stock with your Designer Series Paper…. that way you always have card stock that coordinates with your Designer Series Paper. (you could take this one step further and grab the ink pads to match too!)
- Matt your Designer Series paper on coordinating card stock to make it pop
- If you love lots of the Designer Series Paper….. you could always grab a paper share, saving you cash and the issue of having to use up lots and lots of sheets of 12 x 12″!
This particular card uses Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper…. which I cut to pretty random sizes and then cut card stock layers to match. The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and the card is finished with a hint of that lovely Night of Navy Crinkle Seem Binding, yum!
