You’ve just bought some gorgeous new paper, you slit the plastic cover, carefully you peek inside to see the papers. You even pull a couple of sheets out, not too much tho – you need to get them back in their pack. But you also need to be able to see the beautiful patterns on the other side. Sooo pretty! And they look fabulous in their 12 x 12 size. Carefully you slide all the paper back into the sleeve and set it aside, you’ll use it later for something really special!
And then what happens? YOU NEVER CUT THE PAPER!! Am I right or am I right? Cause if you cut the paper, it will NEVER be the same again!
Today I was brave, and I CUT the Paper!!
And you you know what, it didn’t hurt that much. What’s even better is that I know when I post the cards I’ve created with this paper, my recipients will appreciate and love the paper as much as I do! I can’t hog it all to myself!
I whipped up these amazingly quick cards, and used hardly any of the paper, in fact just a 2.5cm strip from 4 sheets did all 3 cards. Look how bright and beautiful they are together!
You can change the card base colour to change to look of card.
Add some bling in the form of Rhinestones as I’ve done below, or add Enamel Dots like the card above.
So with very minimal supplies (coloured card base, DSP, sentiment stamp, black ink and twine) and you can whip up loads of cards. Are you thinking mass produced Christmas Cards with the Presents and Pinecone DSP or even the Candy Cane Lane DSP. You’d be able to make a huge amount of cards with just a pack of coloured card and a pack of DSP!
AND you’re in luck because those papers are on a special promotion! No Way!! – Yes Way!! Buy 3 and Get 1 Free! So even if you wanted, you could CUT one pack and hog the rest, leave them uncut and just admire them!!
Be BRAVE today and CUT the Paper!
