Gina K. Preview: First Christmas & Vintage Borders


I am so happy to share with today's previews for Gina K.'s October release which is scheduled for Thursday. 

My first card is for Asela's First Christmas set, for baby's and couple's first Christmases together.  I am using a set of smaller ornaments and decided to put them in Melanie's wine glass from A Charmed Life.  Can you believe how perfectly they fit in there?  Stamping serendipity!  The sentiment 'Feliz Navidad' is in the set, which is perfect to send to my Godmother who speaks Spanish.  I used the Jolly by Golly paper pad by Cosmo Cricket, Rocket Red & pure luxury cardstock, Ivory gold-lined organdy ribbon, flourish punch, holiday button assortment, and holiday metallic paste on the main image, all of which are available in the Gina K. Designs store.    

On my next card, I used Nina's new set called Vintage Borders, a great set of borders that can be used on all occasion cards, as well as Christmas!  I used 2 Christmas stamps on my card - the row of delicate and decorative ornaments and Merry Christmas in different languages which I just love!  The layout of my card is fashioned after the week 4 Viva La Verve challenge!  I did them all this month!  I kept the card clean and simple by not even coloring in the ornaments.  I used Cranberry Tart pure luxury cardstock and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper, in addition to coordinating ribbon from the holiday assortment of ribbon.  This would make a great mass production card!
