Gingham is soooo IN right now! I did an entire class on Gingham using the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper! The class consisted of 2 cards for each of the 5 colors. I am going to share some today and the rest later in the week! Bring on the Gingham!!!
These samples were done in Highland Heather!!! I used Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White cardstock as well!!!
Starting with the card on the left, I went with a Highland Heather card base. Next, I took a 2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper for the left hand side. Before adding it to the card front, I added a small strip of Gorgeous Grape to the left side for a little pop of color! This is also a great way to use you scraps! For the greeting, I stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White from the Well Said Stamp Set! It has the perfect inside/outside greetings! I layered the greeting onto a Pearlized Doily which is layered over a 2-1/4″ Circle Punch of Gorgeous Grape! I finished it off with some Gingham Gala Sequins!
For the card on the right side, I used a Highland Heather card base too! Next, I took a piece of Gorgeous Grape (4″ x 5-1/4″) and layered on a 3-3/4″ square of gingham paper! Then I took some Whisper White Woven Thread and tied it around the cardstock where the gingham paper ends. This helps to give a smooth transition from one paper to another. For the greeting, I used the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. Again I used the Well Said Stamp Set for the greeting!!
The insides of the cards have the coordinating greetings and some of the leftover gingham pieces used as decoration! No designer paper waste here!!
For the Lemon Lime Twist Cards, I used all the Tailored Tag Punch!!! For the card on the left, I placed the greeting down first with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This makes it pop more! Then I just added in all around till it was covered. Then I trimmed off the ones that were hanging off the paper!
The card on the right was created using a piece of Lemon Lime Twist gingham measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I layered the greeting with 2 of the tags just off set a bit. Using the Silver Baker’s Twine, I added some loops and secured it to the back of the greeting!
Again for the insides of the cards, I used leftover pieces of the designer paper!!!
