The Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is by far my favorite of all time!! I have used it several times since I received my Pre-Order for the new catalog. And I cannot stop using it. I may need intervention! But in addition to the AWESOME paper, I am showcasing a new fold. Or it could be a new cut, or both! Here it is and then I will explain what I mean.
That DSP just shines! Actually it really does shine. This is one of the sheets that has a pearlized look to some of the flowers. The little pearls in the flower centers are the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. They are just too cute!
The Fold/Cut is a little different. Since the DSP is card stock weight, it can serve as a card base without feeling flimsy. To achieve this look, I cut the Smoky Slate card stock to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2. I scored it at 4 1/4, the normal folding point for an A2 card. But I did not stop there. I went back to my cutter and with the score line at 3/4 on the trimmer ruler , I cut off the rest of the panel. (And I was able to use that cut piece to make the top layer with a bit leftover.)
The DSP is cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I burnished my fold on the Smoky Slate layer and placed adhesive on the inside of the 3/4 section. Then all I had to do was line up the DSP with the rest of the base and fold the small section over on top of it. Easy Peasy and perfect alignment. An added bonus is that when you open the card, you get to see the other side of this beautiful DSP!! WooHoo!! That is always a problem for me when the DSP is gorgeous on both sides. I hate to hide one of them. With this Cut/Fold, I do not have to hide either side.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! I greatly appreciate it and would be happy to answer any questions if I was not very clear on the instructions. I have listed all of the products used at the bottom of the post. I hope you have a great rest of your day!
It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would love to have you join my team. A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first. Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early. For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator. Of course, the discount helps! If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
