I learned how to make this lovely card at a recent demonstrator meeting, where my friend Carolyn encouraged us to “let the DSP do the talking” for this simple yet striking design. The only hard part about this project is figuring out which Designer Series Paper to use; Carolyn used Perennial Essence for her project, and I’ve chosen Bird Ballad.

Cardstock: 5-1/2 x 7-1/4″; score at 3″
DSP: 2-3/8 x 4-7/8″
White frame for DSP: 2-3/4 x 5-1/4″
White insert for inside card: 4 x 5-1/4″; stamp a simple design on the right side of this piece. It will be visible whether the card is open or closed!
The finishing touch is to add a stamped sentiment on the front panel. I chose one from the Free as a Bird stamp set, and used the 2″ Circle punch to cut it out, adding a 2-1/4″ circle punched from the same colour as my cardstock base to frame it.
