Let the paper do the work~~

Today's card showcases a little technique I like to call, cheating.

This super simple card uses SU! Designer Series Paper for the bulk of its beauty! Sometimes the DSP from SU! is not semetrical, and is made more for scrapbookers. But that does not mean you cannot use it to make interesting cards too! Simply look at the DSP, decide what part you want on the front or your card, and use your paper cutter to select just the right part! Then coordinate with matching ribbon and an accent, and voila! Done! Fast and easy.....one of the best ways to be.

I used Real Red card stock, Flamingo DSP, some black ribbon from who knows where, and the FAB punches form SU! Ta-da!
