My daughter, Caroline, is finishing up exams and her first semester of college this week. I’m so proud of how well she has adapted to academic life and grateful that she regularly texts her “empty nest” parents! This card and a little gift will await her when she comes home for the holidays this weekend. Could the sentiment be any more perfect?
I based the card on this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA149) by Margaret Moody. Starting with a sketch makes card making so much more fun. One less decision and I can focus on color, stamps and pattern! Check out what the PPA Design Team has created with this sketch.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- NEW! The little blue jeans (I adore them) are from Patterned Occasions stamp set, available Jan. 22 as part of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion. They were cropped with my Paper Snips and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals for groovy definition!
- I love the little “flower power” on the jeans. How about you?
- NEW! The three strips of Parker’s Patterns Designer Series Paper (available Jan. 3 in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog) were cut to 1″ x 4 1/2″. The card is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
