Love it! Chop it! 2 for 1!

I've gone way outside of my comfort zone today, not only have I cut into a lovely piece of Sweet SoirĂ©e Specialty Designer Series Paper into 6 ready for card fronts, but I also cut one of these pieces so it would make 2 cards, that's way over the top for me cutting into DSP! 



How beautiful did these cards turn out, and all by cutting into DSP! I did have a little "moment" when I die cut the scalloped edge with the Seasonal Layers thinlets, thinking oh no, what have I done!



I dressed up the scalloped edge by adding cutting another scalloped edge and applied silver embossing powder, carrying the them of the silver foil to the decorative edge, and also embossed the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases - I love silver and pink as a colour combination.  Lastly I added Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon.



I used the smaller Hello sentiment from Flourishing Phrases within the scalloped edge in the 2nd card, and used the Simple Stripes embossing folder to add interest to the top of the card, lastly adding Finely Woven ribbon to compliment the DSP on the bottom of the card.

And in the theme of flowers, I am submitting my projects in this weeks Stamp Ink Paper Challenge - do you love flower themed cards, check out great creations on show

    1. I agree Pam, once the DSP cut is made it is easier to then create.

    1. Good spotting Margaret, the scallop is from the Seasonal Layers dies that coordinate with the Colorful Seasons stamp set
