I’m in love with this Gingham Gala Suite and especially the Butterfly Gala stamp set and punch. I recently did a birthday card stamp-a-stack where my ladies made a dozen birthday cards. This was one of the designs, and they made it in 4 of the Gingham Gala designer series paper colors. I love this mini set of cards. I didn’t make one in the Grapefruit Grove since it would have been orange and black, I reserve that color combo for Halloween. Since it was birthday cards, I used the Life is Grand set for the sentiments.
This set is great for beginners since it’s simple stamping and punching. I did use the stitched rectangle dies to add some more detail though. This gingham paper reminds me of using the Buffalo Check background at Christmas. I just want to use it on everything.
This card uses the Beauty Abounds stamp set on Gold Foil Cards with a Gorgeous Grape mat and gold embossing. I also watered down some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint with alcohol and painted on some accents.
I found and copied this design for my demo meeting project and then also used it for a club project. I really love these Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes from the Holiday Catalog, and I’m so glad that they carried over into 2019. I also had designed a Christmas card using these back in October (see further down).
Here’s the Beauty Abounds card.
Here’s the Christmas cards I did back in October with these card packs. I did a silver version with Night of Navy ribbon and a gold version with Cherry Cobbler ribbon.
I colored the ribbon with Stampin’ Blends markers. Loved how these came out. It stiffens the ribbon a little, but it’s so pretty and easy.
