Last week I shared some tips for using Designer Series Paper (DSP) in this post:  Designing Handmade Cards.  I showed one way to use a bold design that could easily detract from the focal point of your card.  Today’s card is another example of how to use a rather busy design without overwhelming the rest of the card.  You can add it as a layer, with only a small portion of it showing behind a background:

Design Tips for using Designer Series Paper in your handmade cards

You can see the flowered DSP just peeking out from behind the card stock, repeating the color of the Pool Party Twine and tag.  It seems a shame to cover up so much of the DSP, but you really have to figure out what you want people to see most on a cardIf their eye is drawn to the background instead of your focal point, your design is not going to feel harmonious to the viewer.

The time for Sale-a-Bration is already halfway gone, so don’t forget to celebrate the FREE merchandise from Stampin’ Up!
