Thanks for stopping by my blog today!   I don’t know about you but I have a ton of scrap designer series paper.  I think it multiplies all on its own!  It can seem overwhelming each time I open the draw and see how much I have.  

So I decided I would do a series of cards made from my scrap bin.

For this card I used the scraps I had leftover from my Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper by Stampin Up®.  This is beautiful paper and I could not bring myself to throw any of it away.  So I had to come up with a design to use this beautiful paper!

Below I will list the card cuts, intructions, supply list and a link to a video showing you how I put it all together.

Card Cuts – DSP = Designer Series Paper

Card Base – Basic Black 51/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Layer 1 – Basic White – 4 x 5 1/4
Layer 2 – (3) Scraps – different designs from Simply Elegant DSP cut into 1 x 1 squares. 
              – First Design – 6-8 squares
              – Second Design – 6-8 squares
              – Third Design – 16 – 18 squares
Layer 3 – Basic Gray – 1 x 4
Layer 4 – Precut sentiment
Layer 5 – Copper Foil Scrap
Layer 6 – Basic White – 4 x 5 1/4
1. Pre cut all your squares
2. Place your first square onto Layer 1 in the center top edge facing it so that it is a diamond shape as shown.
  • Now you will just lay all other squares forming diamonds leaving just a little space in between as shown. (See video for more exact instructions)
  • Once you have all of your full squares on you will turn over and trim off any overhanging pieces.
3.  Now using a embossing folder (I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Folder) Run through the Stamp N Cut machine.  (This gives it an extra measure of dimension)
  • Adhere to card front
4. Using Stampin Dimensionals adhere the Layer 3 to card front about 2 5/8″ from top edge of Layer 1.
5. Layer 4 – Using a pre cut sentiment from the Many Happenings stamp set/Messages Dies.  
  • Adhere ribbon to Layer 3 as shown then
  • Adhere to Layer 3 using dimensionals.
6.  Layer 5 – Using the Iconic Dies cut out the three small flower from the copper scrap and adhere to end of label as shown. ( did use mini dimensionals on the top flowers)
7. Layer 6 –  Using the Elegantly Said stamp set stamp the flower and sentiment as shown in Versa mark ink.
  • Cover with Copper embossing powder
  • Heat up with Heat Tool
  • Adhere to inside of card
Here is the  video link at the bottom!  There are four cards all together on the video this one starts at the 51:31 mark.
