DSP/Color Focus: We have an embarrassment of riches in the Spring Catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog. Choose YOUR favorite DSP from either catalog, and convince the rest of us to love it too!
I did not have any of the new DSP, so I went with the color combination from Parker's Patterns DSP from the new Spring Catalog. I am in love with this DSP and can't wait to get my hands on it! It just looks so versatile. The colors are so rich! I decided to use the colors for a masculine birthday card.
I wanted to mimic the chevron design in the DSP, so this background took some work! I cut strips of each color of cardstock, ran them through the Chevron Embossing Folder, glued them together (carefully lining up the chevrons each time!), then trimmed it to fit my card. It was worth the work though because I love the results! I stamped the dump truck twice, once in Daffodil Delight on Daffodil Delight cardstock and once in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake cardstock. I then punched out the wheels, punched a hole in the center and added gold glimmer brads to the centers. The dirt in the dump truck and the Crumb Cake card base are both spritzed with Early Espresso ink.
