I think I’m liking the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper even more now after this project! At first I was drawn to the DSP because of the colours and of course the flower designs (especially the larger Magnolia flowers), but I thought that I would play around with some of the other designs to come up with a more masculine design, especially since Father’s Day is right around the corner.
For this card I chose this piece of DSP because of the colour (Mossy Meadow) and because the pattern was quite simple. It actually reminds me of paneling a little bit. I then chose to use Crumb Cake cardstock as the card base since it is a nice neutral colour and the Very Vanilla cardstock because it’s a little more subdued than the Whisper White.
With the DSP reminding me of paneling I decided to use the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder on the larger piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
The phrase for this card acutally came from the Itty Bitty Birthdays cling stamp set. There were a couple of phrases that were not directly birthday related, but I chose this one because I wanted something that covered a bit more of the card than just the “it’s your day” stamp would have. I then used a couple of the oval Stitched Shapes dies for the phrase as well as the Mossy Meadow border.
Here’s the project sheet so that you can recreate this project for yourself. Post a pic of your version once you’re done, I’d love to see it!
