Have you seen the suite of products in the new Occasions catalog called Gingham Gala? You will love it! I’ve been having fun with the papers, stamps and punch. Here’s a card I made for a swap a week or so ago.

Design Notes for Gingham Gala Card:

I had not made a gate fold card in awhile. So, why not. I think it’s a good way to show off this particular designer paper. Just about three years ago, I created a video on how to make this kind of card. Check out the video here.

Apparently, I’ve gotten better at making videos as now I don’t seem to have them at such an odd angle!

The front of this card is really the best part however, I used the squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to create the background for the butterfly. After I stamped, painted with Blends and punched it out, I added it to the front and then stamped on the antennae. Oh, make sure you stamp the body before you punch it out! I finished it off with a bit of Wink of Stella.

When you use the Butterfly Duet Punch, you get two butterflies. Bonus!  Since I just used one on the front of the card, I saved the second one for the inside.
