DSP Strips for the Border

DSP strips for the border

I love how easy it is to make a card like this when you use DSP strips for the border! As long as you have pieces 1″ wide and 4-1/4″ long, you can create lots of cards quickly!

Forever Greenery with Forever Gold Laser

Today I’m sharing another card with you that has very little stamping – the Designer Series Paper (DSP) does all the work to make this shiny greeting stand out!


Dimensions and cutting instructions:

  • Cut Pretty Peacock Cardstock at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″, fold & burnish with Bone Folder.
  • Cut Forever Greenery DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach to the card base.
  • Cut Pretty Peacock Cardstock at 3″ x 2-1/2″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach over the DSP.
  • Cut Forever Greenery DSP at 2-3/4″ x 2-1/4″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach over the Pretty Peacock Cardstock.
  • Use Stampin’ Seal to attach the selected piece of Forever Gold Laser-Cut over the DSP.
  • Use Pretty Peacock Classic Ink to stamp the selected greeting from the County Home stamp set on Whisper White cardstock. Use the die cutting machine (Big Shot) and Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out the greeting. Use Stampin’ Seal to attach over the Forever Gold Laser-Cut piece.
  • Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach to the inside of the card base.
