6 Ways To Add Designer Series Paper to a Card
Oh, I had a blast showing these off on Facebook and Instagram and I will say, I can’t wait to make more of these cards and add other ways to tuck some patterned paper into a card. We all do it, let’s show it off.
I used one paper pack to help show off all six design choices. I used the brand new Flower for Every Season Paper Pack #152486.
Graceful flowers representing each of the four seasons make this paper
a versatile, all-year choice. The smaller 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) pieces are ideal for the fronts of handmade cards, for mini scrapbook albums, and as colorful accents. This papercrafting staple is great scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more!
* 48 sheets of patterned paper: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs
* 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

I have 6 simple ways to add designer series paper to any card front.
- Use your DSP as the focal point or feature. It makes for such easy card making and it is a great way to use up patterned paper. Plus, I absolutely love the way the flowers are taking over in my example.
2) Use your DSP by tearing it to create dimension. It adds such a subtle look and yes, we don’t want to tear our paper, but in cardmaking – it is okay. I assure you! Look how it makes me sentiment pop in the example.
3) Use Your DSP in panels. In my example, I have two very pretty matching panels. But you can use three or four skinny banners – it’s really up to you and what patterned paper you are showing off.
4) Use your DSP in a quilt pattern or squares. You have seen me do this before and I think it allows you to really show off different pattern papers in one card.
5) Use your DSP in banners big or small. There is nothing cuter than a card with banners across the front. What a great way to use different patterned papers and to show off color!
6) Use your DSP as strip across your paper. In my example, the card is really showing off the beautiful patterned paper because I did a wide strip. It almost steals the show. You could use a skinny strip or an even bigger strip ~ the idea is to show it off without it taking over. (or is it?)
I am serious, these cards are adorable and so quick to make because of the pattern paper I chose. You could take one sheet of patterned paper and show it off in so many different ways.
