If you love Designer Series Paper then today’s card is one you will really like.  It is a fun layout that stars a piece of DSP.  What could be better.

Layout and DSP

I have to first say that I got this quick and adorable card from The Paper Pixie.  She shared this awesome layout and I fell in love.  I believe you will as well.  The beautiful plaid DSP is from the Dandy Designs Designer Series paper.  It is the extra thick pack that is a Sale-A-Bration item.

I love purple and this paper was a quick choice in flipping through the options.  Although it is more Fresh Freesia than a purple probably.  The plaid DSP piece is cut 3 7/8 X 3 7/8 and scored from one corner to the other, like a diamond.  That size, which took my non-math brain a minute to understand, has a center that is 5 1/2″ long.  So it fits perfectly down the side of the card.  A bonus is that you are also seeing that large triangle of DSP on the inside flap of the card.  I really love seeing more DSP!!


To allow the DSP to shine, I wanted a smaller stamp for the focal layer.  This fun desert is in the Share A Milkshake stamp set.  As is the sentiment.  My color choice may be a bit confusing.  First, I took color liberty to help the desert match the DSP.  That is definitely allowed.  Actually though my favorite ice cream as a child was Grape flavored.  And an ice cream shop near my home had Grape.  I will say that it drove my Mom crazy! 🙂  But I loved it and that was my first thought on matching the paper.


This card is fairly monochromatic in that there are various shades of purple.  The plaid DSP, the Fresh Freesia layers and the Gorgeous Grape desert bowl all work together.  So to complete this theme I added a few of the Opaque Gems.  There are a couple of different sizes and different colors in this assortment.  I chose a large in Gorgeous Grape with two smaller sizes of Fresh Freesia.


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will give this fun layout a try.
