Folded DSP Card (March Class Project)

Here's another great way to use up old Designer Series Paper ("DSP").  This card was made from one 12" x 12" sheet of DSP cut down to 8-1/2" x 11". 

Follow the diagram below to score and cut the paper.  Fold the corners to the inside on the score lines, and then fold the paper to create the card, beginning with panel 1 and ending with panel 4 (click on image for a closer view).

The trim was made from the remaining 3-1/2" strip of DSP using the Scallop Trim Edge Punch; the rosette was also made from the extra DSP using the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die ). Click here to view instructions for making a rosette. For this small rosette, I cut the shape in half length-wise, and add a scoreline half-way between each of the scorelines from the die.

The flower on top of the rosette was made from the Doily Triple-Layer Punch. A Designer Button topped the rosette, and then it was tied together with a piece of Linen Thread, and glued on top of the rosette.

For a special touch, use another piece of DSP to make a matching envelope.  This is where the new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate comes in handy.  Watch this video for information about this fun new Stampin' Up! tool, including instructions for making envelopes.
