Cute packaging using retired DSP

Hi All – happy August! Today is a fun project using retired Designer Series Paper (or in the Stampin Up! World DSP) Of course, any paper can be used, but this is a fun way to make use of that retired product. I’ve used 6 x 6 cardstock and cut that down to size. Here is a picture of the finished product – five  of them anyway – and so easy to do.

Here are the dimensions:

5″ wide scored at 1 1/8″, 2 1/4″, 3 3/8″ and 4 1/2″

4 3/4″ tall scored at 1″ at bottom. Burnish all score lines.

 

Look at the next picture to see how that was trimmed. Notice also the tear ‘n tape and where it is positioned. The first is the front side, the second is the inside of the package.

 

What’s fun then is to decorate! I used primarily the 1 3/8″ scalloped punch for the larger circle, and went from there, looking in my scrap bin for whatever I could find. On one of them are two sets of leaves from the leaf punch: one. In vellum, the other in Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the DSP. The spruce leaf is scored along each leaf and slightly curled to make it more three dimensional. The butterfly is reinforced on a piece of cardstock – cut from another retired DSP. The little dots are glitter dots – don’t you just love them? They bring the decoration to life. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

After puttting it together, I’ve pinched the top and punched a hole in which to thread the ribbon.

Country Floral embossing folder

The Country Floral embossing folder from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue is gorgeous!  I wasn’t going to get it, but all the posts showed these beautiful images and I couldn’t resist.

Today’s card is prepared using Petal Pink card stock (CS). The embossed layer is 4 X 5 1/4… spritz the paper first as this folder makes deep impressions and the spritzing allows the CS some “give” to accept those more easily. After embossing, allow to dry for just a bit. Then with Petal Pink ink and a sponge dauber, rub that color over the raised areas ~ love how gentle this coloring is and how it enhances the embossed design. Glue this piece to Petal Pink 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 CS.  Using the whisper white flax ribbon cut at about 6 1/2″ and wrap this around both pieces, adhering in back with glue dots. Then cut a piece of the whisper white polka dot ribbon at about 7″, placing this on top of the flax ribbon, using tape to adhere it on the back. Using the Pretty Label punch, create a label out of whisper white; rub the edges with Petal Pink, add your sentiment (I used one of my favorites from Perennial Birthday); add dimensionals and place on ribbon.  Using another short piece of the polka dot ribbon, tie a knot. Viola!  Attach all of this to the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Petal Pink CS with dimensionals.  Card front is done :o) On the inside adhere a piece of whisper white cut at 3 3/4 x 5 with your favorite sentiment.

For the envelope flap, I embossed another piece of Petal Pink CS cut at 2 1/4 x 6, glued it to the flap and bingo, the card is ready.  Fun, easy, and lovely.
