Welcome to the Cardz 4 Galz biweekly challenge # 166. For this challenge, Billie picked the theme of using Kraft color or paper. When you finish here, I hope you will hop over to the challenge page to see all the inspiration projects from the design team members.

Sadly, I needed another sympathy card so I paired Crumb Cake and Evening Evergreen cardstock with the New Horizons DSP.

Here’s my card:

This New Horizons 6 x 6 inch DSP (designer series paper) contains stunning watercolor landscapes. The DSP can be found in the current mini-catalog.

Here’s a close-up look at the papers in this pack:

Gorgeous doesn’t even begin to describe this DSP!

Measurements and Putting It Together:

  • The Crumb Cake base, which is my nod to using a Kraft color measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4.
  • The Evening Evergreen mat measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Next, the DSP measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. I also trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • The white cardstock panel on the inside measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I really didn’t want to cover any of this gorgeous DSP, so I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment on the front directly on the DSP. First, I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen. Then I used my embossing buddy to clean the DSP to prep it for the embossing powder. Next, after cleaning the stamp, I stamped it twice using my VersaMark ink pad. I covered the VersaMark with clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.
  • Then, I stamped the inside sentiment, again using Evening Evergreen.
  • Finally, I punched a 1 inch circle from the DSP and ran it through the XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.
