Using Designer Series Papers for the Image

The newest mini catalog is out, and look at this paper! I used a fun die to cut out an enormous postage stamp and then cut the DSP down about a quarter of an inch top and side so it fits right on top. The panel is popped up on Dimensionals and here’s a shot of how to place them:

Not used on this card today, of course, but the lesson is the same. Whatever you do, don’t place Dimensionals at the edges! Leave them inside the sides to help balance the panel and make it look like it’s floating. And, in this case, I wanted to add twine after the face, and there was room to fudge!

Extra interest, I placed the panel up in the corner instead of smack in the middle.

The sentiment is one of the stamps I had Joscie Cutchens make for me a few years ago and I use it all the time. In this case, I wanted it punched out with the Washi Tape punch. When you do this off the panel like this, you only use one Dimensional off the side and a glue dot under the “J” so it lays nice and flat. That glue dot, by the way, keeps the sentiment from swinging out wonky ever. Just in case someone scrapbooks your cards or keeps them some other way.

  1. I never think about offsetting the point of interest. I think it makes you really look at the card. Your mind doesn’t quite know what’s “wrong” but it is pleasant. Very nice
