Design It With DSP - Blog Hop - Garden Impressions

Welcome to our first Design It With Designer Series Paper Blog Hop! I am so excited to share projects with you created by Demonstrator friends around the world. This month we are all using the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

I am honoured to be a part of this Design Team and love that we can all share projects using the same DSP to inspire you! Make sure you check out all the Blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy these wonderful projects :o)

The Garden Impressions DSP comes in a 6" x 6" pack of 48 sheets. You get 4 each of 12 double sided designs. It actually coordinates with the Abstract Impressions stamp set, but I have used it with the Love What You Do stamp set today.

I have created two Video Tutorials for you, one to create the card and another to create the box. I hope you enjoy them :o) 

I would love to know what you think of my project .... please leave me a comment at the end :o) 

Today's card is a 6" x 6" Magic Window Card ......

It is held closed by a Belly Band. Although the card will fit inside an envelope, it's such a special card that I had to create a Box for it :o)

As you open the card, a 'Magic' window gradually opens inside to reveal a hidden image.

This style of card is really lovely and has a great 'WoW' factor!

This is how the cards look with the Belly Band on.

Here is the Video Tutorial ....

Base Card:                                 12" x 6"      -     Score at 3" and 9"
Mechanism Pieces (2):             4⅞" x 4"      -     Score at 4⅜"
                                                                             (pencil mark at 1⅞")
Inside Centre Panel:                 5¾” x 5¾”
DSP for Centre Panel (2):         5½” x 1½”

                                                  (Scored at 2⅞" and 9")

You will need additional pieces of Whisper White for the stamped images and Melon Mambo and Pacific Point card for the various Ovals and frame. 

I created the box to match the front of the cards ...

Here is the Video Tutorial for the Box ....

Base:                                 3/16"  x 7 3/16"       -        Score at ½” on all sides

Top Layer                         6" x 6"
DSP Layer                        5¾” x 5¾”

Band Back Layer:            6" x 1¾”
Band Front Layer:           6"  x 1½”
You will need additional pieces of Whisper White for the stamped image and Melon Mambo and Pacific Point card for the various Ovals.
