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,
