Designer Puns

This is another masculine card I made for next month. My cousin does interior design, hence the choice of stamps. To bring a little life to the card, I chose a die shape for the focal panel and I embossed the pattern paper. The chair is paper pieced with coordinating DSP. Finally I used a sticker border from an old SU scrap kit.

A tip for matting the dies. I cut two of the same size dies – one in vanilla and one artichoke. In addition, on the vanilla one, I also used the die to emboss it. Then I just trimmed the embossed edge off and now I have a perfect mat.

I even did the inside of this one!

Basically I just brought all the elements from the front to the inside. I used a larger size of the same die shape, then added a bit of the DSP and sticker. A stamped sentiment and the card is ready to go!

Created for the Passion for Papertrey blog challenge (Piece Out).

  2. That is such a clever tip for matting those nesties–I always wish they did the in-between sizes like the circles and rectangles. Not anymore! šŸ™‚ I’ll definitely have to pull out that DP, too, since it looks so fabulous textured!

  3. Seen so many lovelies when visiting your blog tonight Karen, but I just had to comment on this gorgeous card! I love that trendy pattern and the matching chair. Awesome!!
