PPA248: A Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers!  I’m back today with another Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.  Here is a bright a cheery card – perfect for Mother’s Day, which is right around the corner.

PPA248This card starts out with a Daffodil Delight card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  For this card, I used smaller borders than I normally use, I like it on this card. (These are 1/8″, most my cards are 1/4″ borders.) The next layer is our Painted Blooms DSP – 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.  Next up is another Daffodil Delight layer 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″ of card stock and a Whisper White layer 3″ x 4.25″ of card stock.  On the Whisper White layer, I had stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Crazy about you stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and the leaves in Wild Wasabi ink.

The border was made out of a 4.25″ x .75″ strip of Daffodil Delight card stock and a 4″ x 5/8″ strip of Whisper White card stock.  I used my Hexagon punch to cut the “V” in either end of the strips making up the banner.  I then used Daffodil Delight ink and two stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set to stamp Happy Mothers Day onto the Whisper White strip. The banner was then added to the card using dimensionals.

I hope this card inspires you to go stamp something cheery for a mom in your life!

Happy Stamping,
