Kaleidoscope ~ Hello Lovely

Here is project 2 of 4 in the kaleidoscope DSP challenge.  Although there are several very large, bold patterns in this DSP pack, there are also a few pieces of smaller patterned paper. For this project, I wanted to figure out how to use the large, bold chevron design found in the DSP pack as well as the smaller polka dot pattern. 

To make this card, start with a piece of bermuda bay cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of basic black to serve as the background color for the project. Cut a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch piece of whisper white, a 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch piece of strawberry slush and a 3 x 3 piece of bermuda bay…layer all of these pieces together. All of your stamping will be on the white piece. I used some of the images found in the Hello Lovely stamp set but feel free to change up the images to something that you have on hand or something that you love! I added a bit of satin ribbon and a little cute clip to the top part of my white piece just to dress it up a bit more.

Once I had the center piece cut and stamped, I played around with potential layouts for the DSP. I decided that the chevron DSP also needed to serve as part of my background. So…I cut a piece of the DSP 3 chevron designs wide and 5 1/4 inches long. I ran the bold DSP vertically, behind the squares and felt that it needed something more. I cut a 1 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the bermuda bay polka dot patterned DSP and ran it vertically behind the squares…and voila! That little piece added just the right touch, don’t you think?
