SC 032/12...

Sunday brings the beginning of a new week & the start of the new challenge over at Sunny Challanges & Creations.  It was my turn to create the sketch & issue the 2nd part of the challenge.  This week, I opted for DSP - Designer Series Paper.  How easy can that be???

Measurements -
Base Card - Cherry Cobbler - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm -
Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - DSP - 3" x 4" or 10.5cm x 7.5cm
Layer 2 - Island Indigo - 1" x 4" or 1.5cm x 10.5cm
Layer 3 - Basic Black - 4" x 2" or 10.5cm x 5cm
Layer 4 - DSP - 3 7/8" x 1 7/8" or 10cm x 4.5cm
Layer 5 - River Rock - 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" or 9cm x 6.5cm
Layer 6 - DSP - 3 3/8" x 2 3/8" or 8.5cm  x 6cm
Layer 7 - Island Indigo - 4" x 2 1/2" or 10cm x 6.5cm
Layer 8 - Very Vanilla - 3 7/8" x 2 3/8" or 9.5cm x 6cm

Using my Eyelet Border Punch, I punched along the side of a scrap piece of Basic Black Cardstock & adhered to the larger piece of DSP prior to adhering to the Base Card - Cherry Cobbler using Snail Adhesive.

Envelope & Inside Card...
I adhered both pieces of DSP to the corresponding Cardstock with Snail Adhesive - DSP Red to the Basic Black & Black DSP to River Rock.  This piece was then adhered to the longer piece of DSP with Snail Adhesive & set aside.

I stamped my image onto Very Vanilla Cardstock with Staz-On Ink.  I meant to do a little embossing, but completely forgot about it until I had assembled my card.  Oh well, next time!  I adhered the stamped piece to both pieces of DSP ensuring that it overlapped.  I didn't quiet adhere permanently but left a little so that I could tuck the ends of my ribbon under.

The whole section was then adhered to the Base Card.  A bow was tied & adhered to the card with a Mini-Glue Dot.

The greeting was stamped in Staz-On Ink.  Again, the embossing was forgotten.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Forever Young, A Word for You
Ink - Staz-On Black
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
DSP - Timeless Portrait

Don't forget to pop over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to check out what both LibbyKris have created along with our 2 Guest Designers for the week.

Once you have completed your card, scrapbook page, etc pop back & link to Mr Linky.  We know you all have heaps of DSP, so this is the perfect challenge to cut into it & use some of it.
