PPA 139 and Sneak Peek

Hello there peeps! Welcome to Saturday! What is everyone doing this weekend? I’m going to try to get some stuff done around the house and then tomorrow morning I’m off to Manhattan to see a few friends. Hopefully the weather will be nice, it’s not fun in the city when it rains.

Today’s post is for the twice monthly Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week we have a sketch provided by Margaret Moody…

I decided that this layout would work great for a holiday card. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I used two different strips of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper for the background. The piece of ribbon across the middle is Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon and is adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip. For the panel in the middle I used some Cherry Cobbler for the backing and the front is a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed with the new Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. The ornaments are from the new Ornament Keepsake Stamp Set* and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green. I used the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies* to cut them out. The smaller ornaments were stamped again in Gumball Green and I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the middle and mounted them to the ornaments with Stampin’ Dimensionals. All of the ornaments are also mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set and is stamped in Gumball Green and punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I used the 1/16″ Circle Punch for the hole that I threaded the Linen Thread through and tied in a knot at the end. I adhered it to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The best part about the stamps used in this card is that they come in a bundle with the Framelits, if you buy them together you save 15%! You know I like fussy cutting but if there is a Framelit it saves a lot of time. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you enjoyed today’s twice monthly Pals Paper Arts Challenge card. Have a happy Saturday!
