Make Your Own Designer Series Paper Four Card Set

I have two sets of four cards to share with you today. The idea to make your own Designer Series Paper has been around for a while I believe, but I hadn't tried it. It is really fun and easy to do. You should give it a try.

Start with a stamp set that has a lot of similar images like the Forever Fern Stamp set does. 

Prepare 4 Basic White card bases 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"

Select the ink colors you want to try. I used:
Crumb Cake for the mini dots
Garden Green
Pretty Peacock
Pear Pizzazz
Just Jade
Rich Razzleberry
Gorgeous Grape

Decide on what color cardstock you want to layer with. Cut four pieces 4" x 5-1/4".

Cut one piece of Basic White 7-1/2" x 10-1/2" and divide into fourths with a light pencil line intersecting the middle. That pencil line will end up being your cutting line following the stamping.

So you start stamping all the leaves images, each in a different color. It will look like a cross on your Basic White cardstock. Finish with the dot stamp to fill in some of the space.

Cut the sheet into fourths and start assembling your cards. You can choose to make them all vertical or all horizontal like the second set of photos I've included.

I used a 1-3/4" and 2" circle punch and my choice of greetings.  The vertical set I stamped in a matching ink. The horizontal set I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Assemble your circle layers and attach to card front with dimensionals.

Finish off with any embellishments you have that match your color scheme.

Of course this card set isn't complete without matching envelope flaps. This four card set would make a wonderful gift for a friend, or neighborly hostess gift.

I hope you'll give it a try!
Happy Stamping!
