I have a snarky birthday card today that makes use of some very unattractive dsp (in my opinion). It's got big alphabet letters in white on a black background and I had no clue what to do with it, so I took the challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers SOSS#40 "U is for ugly" and made a card with it. Of course I covered up most of it, but at least I used it! Ha! I hate to call anything "ugly", so I'll just say I don't find it appealing :)
The old time telephones were done with a Studio Calico stamp set and I heat-embossed one in gold while adding paint pen gold accents to the other. I cut the panels with Lil Inker stitched rectangles and tucked them behind a gold embossed panel with a snarky sentiment borrowed from my friend Mary Anne. I added 3 matching mini brads for the final touch.
I'm also sharing this at the Cards in Envy challenge which is to make a birthday card (A2 size with no bulky embellishments) as well as the Snippets Playground #189 (use snippets).
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fabulous Monday!
