Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
First, Rachael needs to teach me how to photograph cards. It's a shame she lives so far away; maybe when she is here on Thursday, she can show me. Rachael and I share many tastes in common--she is my daughter after all--but once in a while one of us will fall in love with a particular Designer Series Paper while the other one could take it or leave it. I think it is this way with Razzleberry Lemonade, one of my favorite papers ever. I think it's because last year's In Colors were my favorites and this paper has many of them in it.
You may have noticed that I often do not stamp a sentiment on the front of my cards. That's because I will decide later, when I plan to actually send the card. That way, if a friend is retiring or a family member has a birthday, the same card could work. So the sentiment for the white space in this card will be added later ... or not.
In addition to the DSP, I used Whisper White paper, and Rich Razzleberry ribbon. (I turned the ribbon over so that the dots would not show.) The stamp is from Baroque Motifs and was stamped using Melon Mambo. I used a Nestie to cut the shape with the stamp and the backing paper and added silver brads in the corners. Finally, I pierced around the white part of the paper.
