Another DSP idea!

So, I'm on a mission to use my beautiful Designer Series Paper instead of hoarding it. Today's project is a quick look at how to get 9 card layers from one sheet of 12x12 paper.
The Myths and Magic Specialty paper (145600) is awesome. Each piece has a shiny or embossed image on it. I wanted to use it for a set of cards for my grand daughter. By cutting the paper into 4 inch squares, then cutting them on then diagonal I was able to make some cute cards for her set. Here's my sample and how I cut the DSP. Isn't this cute?
It looks like I cut the paper 4" by 5 1/4", but I didn't. I cut the paper in 4" squares. Next, I place them on my paper trimmer with opposite corners over the cutting line and the corners on 1 inch like in this picture. See the top and bottom corners are each on the 1 inch line on each side of the cutting track.
This gives you a piece that can then be layered on
your 4" x 5 1/4" layer on your card front.
Here's a picture of the two pieces on a piece of graph paper to give you an idea of the placement. I used a Whisper White layer so I could stamp my saying in the middle. Then I stamped the mermaid from Magical Day Stamp set (145854) on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I colored the Mermaid with the Stampin' Blends and layered it on a 2" circle punch of another DSP from Bubbles and Fizz. It coordinated perfectly since Lemon-Lime Twist is in both papers.
I popped the circles on some dimensionals and done! I love cute, quick, and easy!

This is a fun and whimsical bundle to help create really cute projects. I love the coordination of matching paper, stamp set framelits, and even washi tape! The Bundle with the Designer Series Paper will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration items. You can get the Myths and Magic 6 x 6 Glimmer paper to go with it for free. Think of all the cards you can create with just these three products!
