Heartfelt Comfort Cafe Card (PPA157)

I love the sentiment “heartfelt.”  It reinforces the message for almost any type of card (thank you, sympathy, friendship, birthday).  This one is headed out to share my gratitude to the amazing employees at Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Support.  They provide us the kind of service that is hard to find these days.  6a00e54f95df928834017c389953da970bI used today’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA157) for the layout.  Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created HERE and PLAY ALONG!

  • Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper provides coordinating colors and the perfect pop of pattern.

  • “Nothin’ could be finer” than Stampin’ Up! Ovals Collection Framelits Dies for creating classic and quick layers.
  • In Color Dahlias add yummy, dimensional bouquet.  They stay in place with Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots.

  • Nope.  You won’t see stitched cards from me (but I think they are beautiful).  I don’t even own a sewing machine and wouldn’t know what to do with one if I did.  However, the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gives me the cutest little cross stitch pattern.  I’m fine with faux!

  • The vase is one of my favorite tricks.  I snipped off the bottom of an ornament cropped with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies.

  1. Fantastic card!! So many sharp elements! Super FUN!
    Thanks for ‘reminding’ me to use my ornaments as a vase!

  2. Quick note . . . fellow demonstrator Stella McKay came up with the idea to shower demonstrator support with cards. I loved her idea and wanted to participate in the “shower” pronto!
