Select DSP collections are on sale at 15% off through August 2, and we are celebrating those collections in our blog posts this month. There are so many things you can do with patterned paper that it was a challenge to decide which paper to focus on and how I was going to use it in a project! You can use patterned papers as the main background on a card base, trimmed in strips or shapes, die cut or punched to form flowers or other embellishments, stamped on, scored and folded to form more complex cards, and so much more.
I cut a piece of DSP in half to 6" x 12", being careful to cut the paper so that the leaves on the inside of the pocket would be going in the right direction. I placed this paper on my paper trimmer with the long side against the top and scored it at 4-1/4" and at 8-1/2" (the vertical scores). Turning the paper so that the short edge was against the top edge of the trimmer, I made a long score at 1/2" along what would be the bottom edge of the card base (the horizontal score).
I hope you enjoyed this project! There are so many possibilities for creating with patterned paper. I hope you’ll check out all the beautiful paper designs that Stampin’ Up! has to offer and maybe take advantage of the sale on select collections through August 2.
