Hello and welcome to ‘MakeitMonday.

Today’s project is a petal pink themed card incorporating the lovely bird ballad designer series paper, pearlised doilies and polka tulle ribbon.

Instructions and Measurements:

The card base is petal pink and measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/4 inches, the matt layer (bird ballad dsp) combines a piece measuring 4 x 5 5/8 inches and I have cut the card 2.5″ down and flipped the top half over to show the reverse side of the DSP.

Before adhering the DSP I attached a piece of polka dot whisper white tulle to the card and once the DSP was applied I added the half doily then tied the ribbon in a square knot.

I added a layered banner section and stamped the word “hello” from the “To a wild rose” stampset – you can use any sentiment you wish.  I attached this sentiment section to the part where the two DSP pieces meet and adhered it down.

Finally, I added two fussy cut images from another piece of the DSP pack, namely a little bird and a flower.  

I love this DSP as it makes every card look so so pretty with minimal effort.
