Do you Hoard paper?

I do, well I try not to anyway.  these 2 cards are DSP heavy.  

I took three 6×6 matching designer paper sheets from the retired Muirfield to make these 2 cards.  I trimmed some down to 4 x 5.5 to fit the top note and then used the 2″ strip as a layer and scraps as the faux ribbon.  I just added a little bit of matching card stock.  Its helpful if you have 1 bold pattern and 2 slightly less so you can stamp right on the designer paper.

All supplies are Stampin Up!

Stamps:  Thank you kindly, Goody-Goody Gumdrops

Paper:  Pacific point, Kiwi kiss, Muirfield

Ink: pacific point, black

Accessories:  Birds and bloom sizzlet, top note die, button, linen thread, brads

    I will also admit, I hoard paper. I have some SU paper from 2 years ago, full pristine sheets I'm saving for something! Love these cards, especially since I have a nearly full pack of this paper I've been trying to do something with!

    I love these cards and color. I don't hoard paper but I have so much that I don't seem to be able to use it all.Every time I go in a craft store I buy paper, can't help myself. Just ordered a bunch from my SU gal.Mary L Schreiber
