I have realized that I do not have many of the new designer papers yet and wanted to make a card today that really needed some special designer paper to punch up the card....SO I made my own! Think about doing this yourself, especially when you need it to compliment or coordinate with a particular style you are using, and the DSP just doesn't work. I saw a card similar to this, made by Sharon Johnson and loved it, so I CASED it! For this card, I stamped in a darker complimentary color and a subtle neutral with my floral stamps, to add depth to a tone on tone piece of DSP. Then, I layered my sentiment and added some ribbon, and I was done! I also think the one on the left is a little more masculine card, for Valentine's Day! SO easy and fun....enjoy! ~Donna
