Playing With Paper I Don't Like


Someone generously gave me a pack of DSP that I didn't much care for. Undaunted, I decided to find a way to make a card using it. I reminded myself that Old Olive and So Saffron are colors I love and set out to design a card I could live with. The paper is called Tall Tales; I used the three sheets I liked the most. In addition to Old Olive and So Saffron, the paper includes Really Rust making it a nice trio. I turned to one of my old favorite stamp sets, Eastern Blooms, stamping each flower in one of the three colors of the DSP. I used So Saffron and Old Olive to back the DSP and added buttons in the trio of colors to the card, finishing it off with So Saffron ribbon from the Dress Up ribbon set. I cased the card layout on Split Coast Stampers and altered it a bit to meet my needs. After I finished the card, I realized I could use it either in landscape or portrait mode.

I love how the three buttons compliment the three stamped images. That ribbon is adorable too!
