Little Ladybug, Best Dressed DSP, Birthday Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

I have been seeing a lot of cards on Pinterest that have the Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut at an angle so I thought I would give it a try today. I have done this before but it's been a while.  It's simple enough to do too.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the DSP from the "Best Dressed" 6" x 6" paper stack.  I made two cards because of the way the DSP was cut.  I cut the DSP at 2-1/8" on right side and 3-3/4" on the left side. 

I stamped the "Buffalo Plaid" image using Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White card stock.  I cut the stamped image 4" x 5-1/4".  I set the DSP piece on top so I could mark it to get the angle right for the card front.  One piece was a little shorter but that is okay, just go for it!

I did cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and I taped the DSP to the top part of it and I taped the Buffalo Plaid piece to the bottom of it.  There was a little big of a gap on the second card front but it got hidden by the 1/4" strip of Old Olive card stock.  That piece measured 1/4" x 5-1/2".  I just grabbed a quarter sheet and cut it off from there. I glued the strip in place over the seam and gap.  You may want to see if you need your strip a little wider or not.  But this is where you hide that gap!

Next I stamped the words from the "Little Ladybug" Sale-a-Bration set. I stamped them directly on the card front using black Memento ink

Then I taped the panel to the front of the card.

I punched out two large and two small daisies per card using Whisper White card stock. I glued them together. 

I punched out the Old Olive leaves using the "Leaf" punch. I glued one to the back of the large daisy and after I set the daisy in place using a Dimensional, I glued the other one just under it.  Then I set the small daisy in place using a Dimensional as well. 

I added the gold "Faceted Gems" to the center of each flower.  I needed to use more of these.  I'm guessing they will expire soon.  But if they do, I will probably still use them until they are used up.  I'm not hanging on to expired things like this if I can help it.  

The card was done and ready for the person it was made for!  Plus I have a spare!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
