Designer Series Paper (DSP) is such a fun way to add color to your cards. For this card, I used the Soft Suede leaf pattern from
To make this card, start with a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, scored and folded at 4-1/4″ on the long side, to use for the card base. Cut the DSP to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhere to the card base. Punch a 1″ strip of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Everyday Label punch (so that the strip is centered across the punch). Punch a 1-1/4″ strip of Mint Macaron cardstock in the same manner.
Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on the Very Vanilla piece with Soft Suede ink. Then adhere that piece on top of the Mint Macaron piece. Adhere the punched pieces to the card with Dimensionals. Add a few of the Mint Macaron Faceted Dots around the punched pieces.
I hope you are excited to get making with Soft Suede! Next week we will take a look at the color Mint Macaron, so don’t forget to follow along here and on social media. I look forward to seeing what you make, so please tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the hashtag #makewithcolor when you share on social media.
