Pals Paper Arts PPA257 StampinUp Sketch Challenge Congratulations Card Idea

My design idea was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  Discover what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created with this sketch and play along here.


  • My color choices and geometric design for this congratulations card were inspired by Stampin’ Up! Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper.

  • I used Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper for the large circle (cropped with a 2 1/2″ Circle Punch) and the envelope liner.
  • The perfect polish!  The envelope liner is a snap with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Liners Framelits Dies.   You’ll want the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform for the best results.
