A Card A Day - Day 7 2020

I made 3 cards for today's challenge, I was on a roll and they really only took about 5 minutes each - and that included cutting and scoring the card base.

The all used scraps of black cardstock and leftover bits of DSP. I punched out some little flowers from cardstock scraps, added some bling, stamped the sentiment, trimmed the edges and they were done.

Materials:

Card base - white, 5-1/2"x 4-14"
Scrap of black cardstock - 4-1/4"x at least 4"long
Scrap of DSP 4-1/4"x 5"
Embellishments of choice

Lay the black cardstock on the card base. Tilt it, keeping the top right hand corners matching, until you have it on an angle you are happy with.

Carefully lift the top and stick down temporarily. To do this, use snail and tap it with your fingers a couple of times to "de-stick"it; it will be tacky enough to hold the cardstock in place.

Turn the card over. Using scissors, trim along the edge of the card. Lift the black mat, and use snail or double-sided tape to stick in place.

Take the DSP and lay on top of the black cardstock, leaving a small border on the right side and bottom. Keep the top lined up with the top of the card. Tack in place. Turn over and trim as you did for the black cardstock. Stick in place with snail or double-sided tape.

Stamp the sentiment towards the bottom of the card.

Embellish as you wish. I punched little flowers from scraps of cardstock and glued down. Then I added little black beads for the centres on two of the cards. On the other card, I used a button in a co-ordinating colour with some twine through it as the embellishment.

Finish off with three rhinestones or gems or enamel dots.

I love how these turned out, especially as I didn't especially like the DSPs used.
