So you have some extra DSP?

Why not use your extra DSP to make some cute, simple 5x3-1/2 inch note cards?  This is some patterned paper I had left over from the now retired Summer Smooches DSP. 

The last time I went to the mall, it seemed that every other store window had a navy/green color combination...which I love.  Why not translate that into a simple note card?  These are great to have on hand for yourself or to make as a gift set. 

Can I just stop and say right here that I'm beginning to dread saying goodbye to Midnight Muse?  It's one of the 2012-2014 In Colors that will rotate out June 1st.  It's such a pretty navy, and I really hate to see it go.

To make the patterned paper sturdy enough to wrap the satin ribbon around it, I glued a 4-3/4x3-1/4 piece of patterned paper to the same size piece of white card stock.  Note that the finished size is 4-1/2x3.  I started with bigger pieces because I don't always (never) cut two pieces of paper "exactly" the same size.  By starting with the pieces larger than I needed, I could cut them down to the finished size after they were adhered together thus eliminating crooked edges.

Here's everything I used:


Midnight Muse Card Stock
     5x7 Card Base
Summer Smooches DSP
     4-3/4x3-1/4 Patterned Layer (Finished size is 4-1/2x3...see above.)
Whisper White Card Stock
     4-3/4x3-1/4 Piece behind DSP (Finished size is 4-1/2x3...see above.)


White Satin Ribbon
Glue Dots (Behind the knot.)

Thanks for stopping by!
