I'm a big fan of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, and one of my favorites from the current Mini Catalog is the ultra-feminine Best Dressed 6" x 6" DSP pack. Today, I'm sharing two cool cards featuring the two fun & fancy sides of this unique paper!
Best Dressed 6" x 6" DSP!48 pretty, feminine sheets that are fabulous for both spring and "girly" cards! One side features the prettiest floral prints and the other side has plenty of female-oriented patterns with shoes, perfume, purses and lipsticks! How fun! You receive 4 each of 12 double-sided sheets, all in lovely spring shades!

There are so many pretty papers in the Best Dressed pack that I knew I wanted to create a couple of cards that really showcased those cool coordinating patterns! The shortened card front design is perfect for that, and all I really needed was a simple sentiment and a couple of accents to finish them up in style!
Background Basics—I started with a Mint Macaron card base measuring 7-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at the 3-1/4" mark. I decorated the front with a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of my favorite floral pattern from the pack, then added a 1" x 5-1/4" strip along the inside right side so that it peeks out from under the card front.
Next, I added a 3" x 1" strip of Mint Macaron card stock across the lower half of the card front to create a foundation for the focal point. I also decorated the front flap with some Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, tied into a double-knot.
Fancy Focal Point—I stamped the Dressed To Impressed sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then die-cut it with the Stitched Shapes dies. I inked up the Dressed To Impressed splotch in Highland Heather, stamped off once, then stamped over the top of the sentiment to give it a little pop.
Finishing Touches—I punched out two Old Olive leaves with the Leaf Punch and adhered them to the back of the circle, then popped it up with Dimensionals. I finished by adding a few Champagne Rhinestones. So sweet!
Two Cool—The second card starts with a Blackberry Bliss card base, decorated with the Best Dressed DSP in the purses pattern and a coordinating striped Daffodil strip on the inside.
Fancy Focal Point—This time, I die-cut a larger circle and stamped a different sentiment with the same stamped-off Highland Heather splotch. Next, I hand-cut a perfume bottle image from another Best Dressed DSP sheet and adhered it to the focal point.
Inside The Card—Don't forget to decorate the inside! I added another Dressed To Impress sentiment with the same splotch. Love it!
