  1. Thanks, Eileen, for your kind comment about this card. I don’t have the card but it would be difficult to measure. My recommendation is to adhere a piece of designer series paper on a diagonal over a layer of card stock and then crop the edges so everything is clean. Does that make sense?

  2. Love this sweet card you made! I’d love to try this, but what are the measurements for the angled DSP?
    Thank you!

  3. Thanks for such sweet comments. They are cherished!

  4. Just love this DSP!! Very clever with colors and interpretation of the sketch!! Fabulous job!!

  5. I love the colors! Of course, this DSP pattern is one of my faves from this catalog. I’m thrilled to see the pearls (wink)! An awesome card!

  6. The paper is so lovely and you used it perfectly with this sketch. Love the colors too, so bright and cheery and the pearls are a sweet detail.
    Thank you for sharing Mary.

  7. Has anyone ever told you that you have a knack for making beautiful cards? You’ve used these colors perfectly. Such a fun card, Mary!

  8. I love this paper! Such a bright happy card!

  9. I’ll bring the crumpets, Dawn!

  10. Makes me want to put on my pearls and head to a tea party! Great way to use that DSP!

  11. Ginger Toivonen

    So sweet Mary! The little pearls are such a nice touch. Your card makes me want to get my stamp out and use it!

  12. Mary – I always love the bright color combinations you come up with. Your cards always POP. I just received this bundle and DSP yesterday and hope to play with it after my workshop on Saturday!

    Thank you for your daily inspirations!
