Trimming The Town Card

Our card inspiration features the Trimming The Town DSP, a new set of papers from Stampin’ Up! found in the 2020 Christmas catalogue.

First, what’s a DSP? That’s Designer Series Paper. They are double-sided printed papers usually in 12 x 12 inches but are also available in 6 x 6 inches.

Coordination is key for an enjoyable paper craft experience and our ink pads, ribbons and embellishments coordinate with our DSP.

Our card today uses the houses and trees found in the Trimming The Town DSP. I love how simple and quick this card is to make.

Here’s how:

  1. First, trim the houses and trees. I used my scissors for this. Remember to leave a little white space around the image when fussy cutting (looks better this way). Then, stick them to your card.
  2. Next, heat emboss the bow in white embossing powder and then use your Bow Punch to cut it.
  3. Stamp a greeting and add embellishments (sequins or gems).
