Hi Stampers.  Today I’m back with yet another Pals Paper Arts Sketch.  I loved working with this sketch and I encourage you to play along with us.  I chose to use the “Nice Cuppa” bundle and matching Designer Series Paper for a fun Mother’s Day card.

PPA292 Stampin' Up! A Nice Cuppa Mothers Day Card

I used our new THICKER Whisper White card stock for my card base. (I’ve been loving the sturdier version for card bases, but still love the thinner version for layers!)  The base is 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next was a 3.25″ x 3.25″ square of Perfect Plum.  I stamped the hearts and tea bags from the Nice Cuppa stamp set onto the layer with Perfect Plum ink.  I adhered it to the upper half of the card, making an even border on top and sides.  Under that I placed a piece of Perfect Plum card stock cut out with the 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch. Next up is a 4.25″ x 2″ layer of DSP from the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper stack. (This is a handy stack of 6″ x 6″ squares of DSP – they are easy to work with and easy to store.)  The flag was made with a .75″ x 4″ strip of Perfect Plum card stock.  I used the #4 circle framelit (counting from center outward) to cut out a circle of Whisper White card stock that fit perfectly into the scallop circle.  Onto that I stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges – with Perfect Plum ink. I then attached it with dimensionals and added a tiny pearl accent to each scallop.  I used my Perfect Plum marker and a ruler to add the stitching around the edge of the card.

PPA292 Stampin' Up! A Nice Cuppa Mothers Day CardFor the interior of the card I stamped the same heart used on the front of the card and another sentiment from the same stamp set (A Nice Cuppa), stamped in Perfect Plum ink.  To further my co-ordination, I added a .75″ x 4.25″ strip of the same DSP from the front of the card and used the leftover DSP from that sheet to line my envelope.  It turned out kinda cute, if I do say so myself. *wink*  I’ll see you over at Pals Paper Arts – can’t wait to see what you come up with!
