Sweet Needlepoint Nook Squares Cards

Hi Stamping Friends! 
I'm going to wrap up my Occasions Catalog Paper Shares groups today.  I still have one opening available for anyone who still wants to participate. The registration has closed on my Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Catalog Kickoff Party, but I do have one more spot open at that event, so contact me if you want to join us.
Today, I'm sharing a sweet little card featuring the charming Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper.  We'll be making this at the Kickoff Party!

Sweet Needlepoint Nook Squares Cards
I may be biased, but I truly think that Stampin' Up! has the BEST Papers!  I love the double-sided coordinating patterns!  I've fallen in love with the Needlepoint Nook DSP because of it's unique stitching and embroidery images.  Check them out!

The front and back sides of the paper provide a beautiful contrast, and I wanted to highlight that on today's cards by using both sides of one sheet. 

See How The Paper Is Made!  This paper becomes even more impressive when you see how it was created from real embroidery.  Check out the video: Needlepoint Nook Suite.
Background Basics—I started with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, texture embossed with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. Isn't that the perfect background for this embroidery-themed suite of products?! The layer is mounted onto a 4-1/4" x 11", vertically folded Whisper White Thick card base with a combination of Tear & Tape and SNAIL adhesives.

Quilt Squares—I cut 4 Needlepoint Nook DSP 1-1/2" squares using the butterflies/navy stitching pattern.  I mounted them onto a 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White and layered it onto a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Balmy Blue cardstock.  It's popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals.

Pretty Label—I stamped the Needle & Thread sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Next, I ran it through the Big Shot with the faux-stitched border die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.  The shape coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch, so I could easily cut it out, then pop it up with more Dimensionals. 
Bitty Butterfly—Finally, I die-cut a small Balmy Blue butterfly shape with the help of the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits and attached it with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  It's topped with a Pearl Jewel.

Two Cool—I showcased a different double-sided Needlepoint Nook DSP style on the second card.  I used the same embossed background and same color mat.

Lovely Label—I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst to match the DSP and assembled the rest of the card the same as the original.
Yep!  I'm enjoying this suite more and more every day!
