TGCDT October 2019 Blog Hop - Simple Cards Three Ways

TGCDT October

This month for the Gentlemen Crafters Design Team Blog Hop I want to show you that you can make beautiful cards without breaking the bank, and with any level of skill from beginner to advanced. Whether you purchase only a stamp set, or the bundle with the dies or punch, or if you go all out and buy the bundle and the coordinating designer series paper - you can get plenty of great creations regardless.

I'm going to feature two really fun and cost effective bundles from the holiday catalogue this time:
Wrapped in Plaid - Page 13 specifically the stamp set 149418, the punch 149521 and the paper 149596 - AND - Merry Moose - Page 27 specifically the stamp set 150494 and the punch 150652.  You can use other Christmas papers and sentiment stamps you already own with these cards as well.

All instructions and techniques are shown in the video, and the measurements and materials for each of the six cards are listed below. Everything I used is available for order, and if you are in Canada I'd love to be your demonstrator. You can use my online shop to have items delivered direct to your door, or contact me for further information on how you can order and save up to 25%.
