I'm back with another gorgeous card from my 'half' sheet wonder. To recap: I'm making 8 matching cards all cut from a half sheet of DSP. Join me each day this week to see a new card, and at the end I'll show you the template for cutting your own.
Today let's talk cardstock. You will need 8 card bases to create these cards, which means 4 sheets of 8.5x11 cardstock (just cut it in half at the 5.5" mark). I used two sheets of Very Vanilla and one sheet each of Baked Brown Sugar and Tangerine Tango to match the DSP.
Then, you will also need 4 strips of cardstock (5 1/2" x 2 1/8") to create the colored stripes on some of the cards. You can cut them from a half sheet of cardstock, or two quarter sheets as I did giving you more color variations. From one of these strips you will cut off 1/2" the long way (so it is 5.5x0.5). Use the wider stripe on the card from day 4 and the skinny stripe on today's card.
Which brings us to today's feature, the card of course!
I love the uniqueness in today's card with the diagonal mounting of the DSP block. But if you are the type of person that likes things nice and square it would look great straight on the card too. Let me know how you would make it :)
Be sure to flutterby tomorrow. We have lots to talk about with the template for how to cut all these DSP blocks out!
