Band Together, Birthday Card, Wedding Card, With Feels Like Frost DSP

Last year Stampin' Up! came out with the 6" x 6" "Feels Like Frost" Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack. I bought two with big plans of using them both up. But as usual I had a lot left in both packs. I did open the second one. Not sure why, I must have used up all of one design in the first pack.  Anyway, I have lots left so I need to use it up this time around.  Stampin' Up! brought it back in their 2020 Holiday Catalog. I was thrilled. It's SO pretty and easy to work with.  You can whip up a bunch of cards in no time using an easy layout and some words. Hmmm, maybe that is what I was planning on doing!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Gorgeous Grape card stock. I cut the full sheet on the short side. Before folding this card measures 4-1/4" x 11". I scored it at 5-1/2" and folded it in half. I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside. I like to do that first so when I'm done with the front it's all done.  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

I cut a piece of the DSP 2-1/4" x 5-1/2". The layer behind the DSP is Highland Heather card stock cut 2-3/8" x 5-1/2" and the Whisper White piece behind that was cut at 2-1/2" x 5-1/2".  I taped all those layers together and then taped them to the front of the card.  You can use any width of DSP you'd like, just cut the layers 1/8" wider.  I think I could have cut this one a 1/2" narrower and been okay with the look. But it's cut at 2-1/4" and it looks just fine.

The words are from the "Band Together" set and were stamped on Whisper White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ink. I die cut them with the 3rd smallest "Stitched Rectangles" die and I die cut a Gorgeous Grape layer using the rectangle that was the next size up. I taped those two pieces together and then I set them in place on the card using Dimensionals.  And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make and it's very pretty too!! I do like how it turned out.

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
