DSP #9 Perennial Essence Handmade Card

Learn how to utilise your DSP to make beautiful handmade cards

Hi and welcome to today’s blog tutorial which “All About that DSP – Episode 9. Today’s tutorial is a multi layered handmade card using DSP, changed up a little bit from the usual straight cut edges – to give it a softer, more vintage look.

The designer series paper chosen today is the beautiful perennial essence paper which has a beautiful array of life like hand painted images. A truly stunning DSP for sure.

I wasn’t sure how to use this paper when I started preparing for this project, but I got there in the end – I decided to multi-layer this card using petal pink cardstock as it is one of the co-ordinating colours for this DSP handmade card. That along with the lovely Blackberry Bliss ink pad….. adorable.

I hope you like today’s project which uses the co-ordinating stamp set Floral Essence – a truly lovely suite all round.
