Better Together, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up! Catalog 2017-2018

I SO love this "Whole Lot of Lovely" Designer Series Paper (DSP). especially this sheet/design!!! I would like a whole pack of just this design!!!

I don't know if this is a card technique or just a layout but I had seen it used on some cards and it's been in the back of my mind for a while now.  I love how it splits up the card.  I don't know if I made it correctly or not but this is my version of it.

The base of my card is a folded piece of Soft Sky card stock.  I gut it at 4-1/4" on the short side. 

Next I took a piece of Soft Suede and cut it 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  I cut a piece of the DSP to 4" x 5-1/4".  I took a scrap piece of copier paper and cut it to 1-1/4" wide. I didn't measure the length, I just needed it long enough to cross over the card.  I marked where I was going to cut it and then taped the two layers lightly in the center of that space.  I cut the layers apart and put the center pieces in recycling.  Next I took the DSP and trimmed the newly cut edge 1/8" on both pieces.  I taped those two pieces in place on the front of the card base.

I stamped the words from the "Better Together" set using Basic Black ink.  I die cut them out using the oval die and I used Tangerine Tango card stock and the scalloped die for the layer.  I taped those two pieces together and I set them in place with Dimensionals.  And that was it. It's the background paper that really carries this card.  Fun and pretty too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
