Be Merry Designer Series Paper meets Merry Patterns Hostess set

If you have not taken advantage of the Designer Series Paper Sale don't wait too long, it ends on October 31st! How can you resist buying 3 packs of DSP and getting a 4th one for FREE.

Here's a sample I made with the Be Merry DSP (144111) that you can find on page 188 of the Annual Catalogue. You will notice I have used the Hostess set - Merry Patterns - to create this fun fold card. I am not sure how to call it as it is very simple: the big tag/label on the front opens up and then you can fully open the card. (sort of a flap over?)

It is a very simple card made mainly with pieces of DSP on the front of the card base. It is then dry embossed with the Holly folder (141634) and you can add rhinestones or other elements to decorate.

Inside, the tab/label created with the Lots of Labels framelits (138281) is glued before adding the Whisper White panel (also decorated with a piece of the same DSP).
The sentiment on the Whisper White label in the front comes from the Hostess set currently part of the special promotion, also until the end of the month: Merry Patterns. The small branches on the inside panel also are from that same set. This is a 2-step set  (see the word "Season")

A 1/4" magnet has been added to the inside flap and the front of the card to make sure it remains closed.

So as you can see you can easily make beautiful cards with a few pieces of DSP and a little stamping.

If you are curious about how the word "Season" was coloured...... there is a class next Thursday October 26!

Let me know what you think of this card and come back as I will be featuring other cards made with the various DSP you can choose from to select 3 and get a 4th one totally FREE. There are 13 to choose from and if you go to my online store  and hit SHOP NOW you will see on the left hand side  just under HOME a heading that says: Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP Sale. Click on that heading and you will see all the DSPs that are on sale....but only until October 31st...... better hurry!

Have a wonderful day. Time for a second walk and enjoy the gorgeous (but windy) day.

Happy Stampin!


What a festive card! I am looking forward to an additional posting, hopefully with a close-up of the cover sentiment, after your class on the 26th.

Thank you so much Peggy! Yes after the 26th I will explain in details how I did the cover sentiment.... really easy quite frankly! Thanks for stopping by and especially for leaving a comment!
