I played with the Beautifully Penned DSP to make a holiday card.
And, the Beautifully Penned DSP can be seen in the SU! Sale-a-Bration album. It is free with an $50 order and is available till September 30th or supplies last. (More SAB details can be found here) Also, the black and white 12 x 12 DSP coordinates with the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle, found in the SU! Annual Catalog. Too, I know the DSP was not developed for holiday cards, but challenged myself to use it for Christmas.
I began by making a card base with Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Then, I added a layer of Gold Foil which was cut out using the Scalloped Contours Dies.
Next, I cut out a layer of Beautifully Penned DSP with the Stitched Rectangles dies. Then, I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the images (Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Combos). Too, I used a SU! retired pen to add Gold highlights to the images. Afterwards, I adhered the layer to the card front.
Then, I used Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes set (found in the SU! Mini Holiday catalog) onto Basic White cardstock. Thus, I used the Tasteful Labels Dies to cut out the sentiment. And, I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a mat from Gold Foil. Too, I adhered the layers together.
Afterwards, I adhered the matted sentiment to a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which had been cut with the Tasteful Labels dies. Thus, the layered sentiment was adhered to the front of the card. Finally, I added three Gilded Gems randomly to the card front.
For the inside of the card (made with the Beautifully Penned DSP)
Too, I stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes set with Cherry Cobbler ink onto a layer of Basic White cardstock. To finish, I adhered the layer to the inside of the card.
Thus, I completed my holiday card using the Beautifully Penned DSP. And, I hope you enjoyed seeing it. Too, the Beautifully Penned DSP can be found on my online store here.
