Hello, there! Back to business as usual after the 4th of July weekend. I actually did a little crafting so I’ll have something to share this week. I couldn’t resist Diane’s Double D Simply Gingham Challenge so I sat down and made a quick card. There’s not one iota of stamping or coloring here, but sometimes it just happens that way. I did crack the seal on a couple of new-to-me dies, so I’m happy about that.
My little flower pail and border is made from some ancient gingham paper. Some of the first designer paper I ever bought, in fact, back in the pre-stamping days. I used it for scrapbooking, but I had quite a bit left over. I’ve no idea why I haven’t used it for cards prior to this. Have a look at the ultra-inspiring inspiration board:
Is that not just as cute as can be? Love all that gingham!
I think my simple card is pretty self-explanatory, so I’ll save the rest of the info for the recipe which you can find below my signature. Be sure to hop over to Double D and see more team samples, then pull out that gingham paper and start crafting. You might win a prize! See you again soon!
