With Sympathy- PPA70 and CC298 Challenges

Hi Stampers!

I created this card using the wonderful sketch for this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA70 Challenge (see and the colors from Splitcoast Stampers CC298 Color Combination (see  

To create this card:

Stamp the background stamp Bella Toile with Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock.  Using the 1 ¼” square punch, punch out nine squares and sponge Chocolate Chip ink onto the edges of each square.  Using the Color Spritzer Tool with a Chocolate Chip marker, spritz over the squares and mount onto Whisper White leaving a space around all of the squares.

Using the Big Shot, cut out an oval from Crumb Cake cardstock and Whisper White cardstock.  Using the second to the largest oval from the Crumb Cake cardstock, stamp the floral image from Happiness Shared in Cherry Cobbler ink.  Color and highlight part of the floral image with the SU! White Gel Pen.  Sponge the edges with Chocolate Chip and spritz using the Color Spritzer Tool and Chocolate Chip marker.

Using the Ornament Punch, punch out four ornaments from Cherry Cobbler.  Using the Big Shot with the Finial Press Embossing Folder, emboss the four Cherry Cobbler ornaments, large Whisper White oval die cut, and the nine square panel. 

Layer the nine square panel onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim close to the edges.  Using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, punch along the edge of another piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere below the nine square panel- trim to match. Attach the Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon bow over the seam and stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler. 

Layer two of the Cherry Cobbler ornaments on top of the Large Oval and two behind the Large Oval.  Adhere the floral image oval in the center- attach this entire assembly in the middle of the nine square panel.   

Add pearls to finish off the scallop trim edge and center of the floral image.
