DSP Zig Zag Card

Okay finally made good on my promise to show you the other version of a zig zag card which we will be doing in class this month.

This is the version using Designer Series Paper. For this one I have used paper from the hostess set of DSP papers Cheerful Treat. I will be making some more samples and can't wait to do one in Paisley Petals DSP.

If you would like to come along to my class please send me an email at to book your place.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look!
