Make Your Own DSP

Only a few more days until you too can purchase what is my favorite set (so far) in the Occasions Catalog - Balloon Builders.  Then you can make your own Designer Series Papers (DSP) with jelly beans!

Aren't these cards just adorable?  I saw the "jelly beans" in this stamp set while making some of my other cards using this set and just knew I had to mix up some colors and make it happen.

Recipe ~
Stamps:  Balloon Builders; Num-Num; Remembering Your Birthday
Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Watermelon Wonder / Cucumber Crush - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 5" x 3 3/4"

I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White and then die cut with Banners Framelits and then cut the next size up framelit using Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush.  I trimmed the color paper down with my paper snips, because I wanted a smaller border of color.

Inside and the envelope:

Back of the card and the envelope (I love my new "back of card" stamp!):

Thank you for looking in today.  I hope your first day of 2016 was a pleasant one and today we're ready for Day 2.  Make it a great one!
