Funky Paper Players (PP39)



I love this card I made for Paper Players "Clean & Simple" sketch. However because I wanted to use this paper I had to change the size of the sketch somewhat so it may not qualify. The paper is an oldie but goodie I just love those little birdies & apparently so does SU since the brown bird is the one they used on one of the tote bags from last year (which I happen to have thanks to my daughter ).

My hoard of scrappin' stash here is limited especially paper so I found this adorable paper tucked away. As you can see it is a simple card with chocolate chip and baja breeze matting the DSP (which I can't remember the name of, I'm sure all you gals will). I clipped the corners with the ticket punch and tied some (not quite matching but all I had) Bakers twine around the DSP and added a little tassel instead of a bow, just for a change of pace.

Guess I'm going to have to place an order with my daughter Nance at Canopy Crafts for some matching ribbons!

Oops, almost forgot here's a peek at the inside.


Thanks for looking.

Nancy I LOVE your birdie card and I too wish that "Sweet Pea" DSP would have carried over. Maybe they'll surprise us in the new IBC in July ??? A girl can dream right? The inside is adorable too, but your tassle is a GREAT idea! Love it. Hugs.

Nancy, this is adorable! The DSP is so fun and your tassel is such a fun way to showcase baker's twine! (How fun is that yellow baker's twine, by-the-way?) The punched corners are a great detail, too. Thanks for sharing your creativity with The Paper Players this week! :)
