1- Cut a couple coordinating 6” x 6” DSP into 4 pieces – Start by trimming off ½” from one side. Rotate and cut at 3” and again at 1 ½”. This will give you 3 pieces (1- 3” x 5 1/2") (2- 1 ½” x 5 ½”). Then cut the ½” strip to 5 ½”. 

2- After cutting all your DSP, group these together into the pieces you want to use on your cards. 1- 3” piece, 1- 1 ½” piece, and 1- ½” piece. You will have some 1 ½” pieces left over you can use these for a bonus card, see below.

3- On your 3” pieces stamp your choice of starburst, dots, or hearts, randomly from the left corner to the right corner in VersaMark ink. Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over the stamped images and shake off any excess. Heat with Heat Tool.

4- Add the 1 ½” strip to the bottom of your card. Then the 3” piece on the top. Cover the area where they meet with the ½” strip. 

5- Stamp your greeting with your choice of coordinating color, I used Night of Navy, on the 1” Whisper White piece. Add to your card over the ½” strip on the right side with dimensionals.

6- Wrap 20” of White Bakers Twine under the greeting and tie a bow on the right side.

All Done!

Bonus Card!

1- Group your extra 1 ½” pieces into groups of 2 or 3 coordinating patterns. (If you have one that doesn’t match you can use just one by its self too). 

2- Add these together on a cardbase starting on the bottom of the card and layering the others in the group to cover the card front.

3- If any pieces are solid colors you can stamp the greeting directly on the DSP. If not stamp on a 1” piece of Whisper White Cardstock and adhere to your card with dimensionals.

4- With 20” of White Bakers Twine wrap around the card and tie a bow near the greeting. 

Here are some examples using 3 pieces, 2 pieces, and 1 piece.
