Butterfly Brilliance Sneak Peek: Make a Faux DSP Card Base with 6×6 Bijou DSP

Get your Wish List ready, because today’s project showcases the upcoming Butterfly Bouquet Suite — a sneak peek from the new catalog! This whole month I’ll focus on the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set plus Brilliant Wings Dies and Butterfly Bijou DSP (available for order beginning Tuesday, March 2).

And in addition to the 4 projects that I’ll share with video tutorials here on my blog, if you order with me during March you’ll receive my bonus PDF with 12 additional project ideas.

Today’s Faux #DSPCardBase project makes the most of the new Butterfly Bijou 6×6 Designer Series Paper, even though it’s not really large enough to create our usual DSP Card Base layout. Here’s the inside – see how I cheated the inner layer?

Make Your Own Faux #DSPCardBase with 6×6 Paper:

  • Cut DSP to 4″ x 6″. Score at 5 1/4″.
  • Adhere 3/4″ flap to 1/4 sheet card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), centering on panel.
  • Stamp and adhere Basic White layer inside (4″ x 5 1/4″)

The video includes a variety of tips for design and some ideas to get around the ‘quirks’ of a card based with the lighter DSP, and a lesson on heat embossing. If it’s been awhile since you’ve had your Heat Tool out or you’re new to heat embossing, then you’ll appreciate the refresher lesson on using Versamark Ink and Embossing Powder to create the crisp raised message in white on the black cardstock.

There are so many clever ways to add little touches to this butterfly card. Today’s video included tips on Paper Quilling, too. Something about the curls of paper make me feel like the butterfly is free and flying – a perfect accent for this pretty Butterfly Brilliance card layout.
