Pals Paper Arts #256 Makes Me Happy

Father's DayYou’re only late to a party if you don’t show up (LOL). Today my card is my entry into the Pals Paper Arts #256 sketch challenge.  I am loving the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper.  Anything black & white looks fabulous with gold.
PPA 256You have until tomorrow to enter this challenge.  This was a really nice layout challenge too. I love the way my card came out.

Father's Day

I want you to see the 3-D effect on the banners. You can’t really see the raised banner very well in the photo above.


  • Never Enough Gold.  A card will step up in elegance when you add gold or silver as a layer.  The two diagonal banners look like silver in the photo, but the layer is actually whisper white. Ahh, the magic of iPhone 6 plus photography.
  • Card Details.  Card base is 5″ x 5″, gold foil paper is 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4′, basic black is 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, DSP is 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Banners are 1″ in width and eye-balled in length.  The heart is from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

No Contact – What it really means. When you select “No Contact” when you place your on-line order it literally means, “Don’t tell Maggie I placed an order.” I will not be told who you are and can’t send you the free product samples. I would love for you to instead check-mark, “YES, allow my demonstrator to contact me with order updates and other important information.” Please know that I will never send you junk mail. I want to show you how much I truly appreciate your business.

Try it before you commit.  My personal story, I had never in my life heard of Stampin’ Up! until my first Afghanistan deployment in 2009.  Two years later…I was offered the opportunity to become a Hobby Demo.  I told myself I’d join just to get the free Big Shot and then quit.  Well, I can’t quit such a good thing (LOL).  I extend the offer to you, join for the fun, join for the new friendships, or just to get some great quality product at a discount.  Do it before June 30th and receive two FREE stamp sets offer!  Click here to read the details.
