Hello everyone! Here is a simple and easy card featuring the Gingham Gala Suite products in the Occasions Catalog. I love the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper! It’s great for any occasion and the colors (Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, and Whisper White) are so pretty.
Let’s talk about my card front. When designing this card, I wanted to use a piece of Balmy Blue Gingham DSP for the card front but also wanted to adhere an embossed layer used with the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder on top. Instead of covering the majority of Balmy Blue Gingham DSP (being a little bit conservative), I die cut a 4 1/4″x 5 1/2″ piece of Balmy Blue Gingham DSP with the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits, and then adhered the outer piece of the die cut right onto my Balmy Blue card base. The Rectangle Stitched Framelits give you a double border of stitched design meaning you get a stitched border on both of your die cut pieces. I’m saving the other piece for another project!
How about the new Butterfly Gala Stamp Set? To be honest with you it took me some effort to convince myself why I needed another butterfly stamp set:-). But I’m glad that I got it along with the Butterfly Duet Punch. Possibilities are endless with the stamp set and having the punch makes it so easy to punch them out. Did you know the Butterfly Duet Punch coordinates with the gorgeous Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which is featured in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure this year? It is absolutely pretty!!!
