CASEing the Catty #219 | Gingham Gala

There’s nothing like a weekly blog hop to make you realise how quickly the weeks roll around.  Hello March!!!

This week at CASEing the Catty we’re celebrating the Gingham Gala suite and subsequent pages of the catalogue.

Gingham isn’t usually my go-to favourite, but it’s growing on me!  I loved the brightness of this card on page 34 of the Occasions Catalogue.

I used strips of Gingham Gala DSP across a landscape Whisper White thick card base and added a cupcake centrepiece

I’ve translated lots of elements from the original card into my version – the gingham DSP, use of white twine, flowers & Grapefruit Grove sentiment.  They are now just in cake form!!!  There’s so many options in the Piece of Cake stamp set, I feel like I’m still creating with new cakes for each card.Gingham Gala | kelly kent

I’ve used the colours from the Gingham Gala suite to create the cake elements – Highland Heather for the swirly frame, Grapefruit Grove for the cake and coordinating flowers with Stampin’ Blends.

Although I’m generally a ‘straight’ kinda girl when it comes to adding pieces to my cards, I loved the wonky overlapping effect of layering the DSP.  This came about because I cut the DSP into 1″ strips without doing the maths – and then they didn’t fit.  I wasn’t cutting them again, so I just added them all on top of each other!

  1. The cake looks fabulous in the swirly frame circle. Perfect fit. And the wonky strips are super cute. What a gorgeous card. And just oerfect in real life too! Thankyou. 😀

  2. I love a happy accident in creating. No-one would know that that wasn’t your initial intended effect haha. looks great.

  3. Sometimes it does us good to just get on with it, and the effect is perfect anyway. Love the cake as the feature!

  4. Shhh, don’t tell anyone the wonky strips were an accident because they look fabulous! So much to love about this card but I really like the little pile of coordinating flowers on top of the cake.
