PPA 133

Posted on

Good morning everyone on this dreary Monday morning. My friend and I drove back from DC yesterday and it rained the entire time. It was 81 degrees on Saturday and sunny so we did get to have a nice day while we were there. Today’s card is for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch. They have given us this to work with…

I love to try and use only one stamp set to make a card every once in a while. For this card I used Artistic Etchings. The base of the card is Rose Red cut to 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and folded in half. I stamped the Eiffel Tower in Basic Black on Whisper White. I used my Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to add some Silver Mini Brads to the bottom edge. Two pieces of Neutrals Collection Designer Series Paper in Basic Black are adhered to the left side. The filigree image is stamped in Rose Red and punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out a piece of Basic Black at 2 1/4″ for the backing and mounted it on some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also placed a Silver Mini Brad in the center. The greeting is also stamped in Rose Red and I used the 1″ Square Punch to flag the one end and mounted that too with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a finishing touch I stamped the key in Rose Red and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I love the classic simplicity of the card and hope you like it too. Thank you so much for dropping by and have a great day!
