Let’s do a 6×6 DSP technique today.
I love finding ways to efficiently use my beautiful sheets of 6×6 Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Do you also like DSP and do you have a favourite way of using them in your cards? Do you keep every inch of the leftovers or do you throw them away?
Here’s how I was able to make the 3 cards (refer to photo above) from 1 sheet of 6×6 DSP:
- Trim 2 inches from the side of a DSP and shape it in a banner. Attach the banner on a card base and embellish with a butterfly and a greeting. I shaped the greeting before attaching it to the card. Add embellishments for a finishing touch.
- Next, die cut an oval on the remaining piece of the DSP. Attach the piece with the hole on a card base. Stamp a greeting on the hole. Add embellishments for a finishing touch.
- Lastly, attach the leftover oval on a card front that has been embossed (refer to the red card). Attach a greeting to the oval. Add embellishments for a finishing touch.
I hope that you enjoyed this inspiration and that you’ll give the 6×6 DSP technique a go.
I wonder how you’ll be cutting your DSP? Will you be cutting them smaller or into narrow strips make more than 3 cards out of a single piece? What other projects do you use your DSP for? I use them a lot in my bullet journal and scrapbooking.
