In the Wild Designer Series Paper Cards

These were the cards I made during my Facebook live video on Monday, July 12, 2021.  The video is also available on my YouTube channel.

This first one starts with two 3" X 3" squares of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Cut a slit on both pieces at 1-1/2" from the edge to the center of the square.  Intertwine the 2 squares.  Adhere them together in opposite corners.  Fold back 2 flaps and adhere those down.  You should see all 4 sides of the DSP, if you have used two different patterns.  A fun option would be to emboss the square to give the effect of a quilt.  

I have layered my 3" X 3" square onto a Evening Evergreen square that is 3-1/4" X 3-1/4" and a Cajun Craze square that is 3-3/8" X 3-13/8".  

The sentiment is from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.  (I cut apart 'Happy Birthday' and 'you sweet thing'.)  The punches I used are the Label Me Lovely for the sentiment, and the Label Me Fancy from a scrap of the DSP to include a tiger on my card.

Another idea that I show here is to adhere a 6" X 2-1/2" piece of DSP to the flap of your envelope.  I used liquid adhesive for this.  Once it's dry, just trim the DSP around the envelope flap.

As I mention in my video, this second card would be a great layout for other DSP!  The dimensions of my layers are:

Standard A2 card base:  when folded:  5-1/2" X 4-1/4"

Evening Evergreen DSP:  5-3/8" X 4-1/8"

Embossed So Saffron:  3-3/4" X 3-1/2"

DSP Print:  4" X 2-3/4" 

Sentiment:  Scrap that is 5/8" X 4"

The sentiment is from Artistically Inked and is heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Versamark ink on the stamp.

So many of our DSP packs have coordinating prints that this could be a useful layout.
