Blogger's Challenge #81: Designer Series Paper Focus

Our challenge this week was to use Designer Series Paper as a focus for our project. I started with the layout from SCS and then made a matching envelope from the same DSP I used on the card! Super fun!



To make my envelope, I very begrudgingly (and carefully) tore apart one of my Stampin' Up Envelopes. I LOVE these envelopes. People think I'm crazy that I think that this paper on the Whisper White and the Very Vanilla is soft (and the same with the coordinating cardstock) BUT it is SOFT!!! They stop thinking I'm crazy when they touch it themselves. But, I tore one apart to use as a pattern (and will save it forever!) I have a bottle of retired Greeting Glue from SU that I used to seal the envelope when it was ready to send!



The DSP I chose is the new Raspberry Tart! YUM-O! It is truly beautiful paper! But, it's not too late to order the retiring paper from this catalog.

Thanks for looking and be sure to see what the other members came up with by clicking on the Blogger's Challenge link!
