Technique Tuesday – Diagonal DSP!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you!!! Today the technique is super fun and simple and uses every inch of your 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (not for 1 card though). Check out this cool card!

Affectionately Yours,

Simple and yet fabulous!!! I used the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and Love & Affection Stamp Set but this could totally pass for a Man Card…..right? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

SUPPLIES: Designer Series Paper of choice (DSP), Stampin’ Trimmer

 You will need a 4″ x 4″ square of Designer Series Paper. I used the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper for mine. The awesome thing about this size is that you can get 16 squares 9 squares (CORRECTION) from 1 sheet of the paper with no leftover scraps. I love that!! Place the square diagonal on your Stampin’ Trimmer and cut. This doesn’t have to be exact or at any specific spot. Just a diagonal from side to side. I love that part too. 🙂 When I created mine, I just placed the Designer Paper on a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped first. This way if I messed up my stamping, I could get another piece of white and not mess up my Designer Paper as well. So place your pieces on the white and stamp your greeting and design in that split opening. I used the Love & Affection Stamp Set. I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy Ink and the leaves in Cucumber Crush Ink. Then I adhered the DSP to the top and bottom and attached it to a Night of Navy card base! To finish it off, I added a few Night of Navy Enamel Shapes for a little POP! Simple and fabulous and this design is great for using up Designer Paper or whipping up a ton of cards quickly!!! Love it!

    • Oh geez. I am horrible at math. You are correct, it is 9. I was thinking 4 x 4 which is 16 but it is 3 x 3 (4″ Squares) which is 9. Sorry about that and thank you for catching it! ~Laura
