Using 12x12 Designer Paper


Today I'm sharing 2 of 5 cards I made using some of those large patterned 12x12 dsp's that are hard to use for small cards. All of the papers are BG Wisteria Wonder that I've had in my stash for years. I pulled out some random pieces of matching colored cardstock for the backgrounds, and punched a stamped flower accent. The sentiment is from Unity's Sending my Love stamp set.


Here's another one done in plum colors with a different flower and a brad in the center. The sentiment was heat-embossed with white ep.

I'm entering these cards into the Unity Friday Friends with Flair, along with the Snippets Playground #162.

Thanks for spending a little of your time with me today, and I wish you a wonderful Friday!

Great cards. You matched up the colors in the papers with your cardstock real well. This is a good use of that oddly patterned paper but the strips you've used are so small... you could make 15 cards from just a couple of sheets of patterned paper!
