So many of us struggle when it comes time to create cards for the guys in our lives? I am not really sure why that is. Maybe as women we are naturally drawn to images and colors we enjoy when we are creating…who knows, but I will tell you, it can definitely be a challenge for this girl.
Today I have a super fun project that will have you celebrating those guys (and gals) in your life in style!
I created this gender neutral gift card holder in my Tuesday YouTube LIVE featuring a few products from the upcoming Bright & Beautiful Product Suite that will be available starting May 2, 2023. I also pulled in the brand new color, Azure Afternoon, and paired it with Lemon Lime Twist and Blueberry Bushel (a couple returning favorite colors). I love the shades of blues with a little pop of green.
Can’t wait to get your hands on these fabulous new products? It’s a perfect time to join my #diemondscommunity. You can currently add select upcoming new products to your full customizable start kit now! See details on becoming a Diemond HERE.
This project is an awesome go to layout you can use over and over again for just about any upcoming Celebration.
I simply love the mix of fun watercolored patterns in the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper pack is full of cheerful patterns you can use on sooo many projects. You can see in the pics above, that I created a couple different versions where I changed out the paper patterns and even added the amazing Gold Celebrations Specialty overlay to the one on the left. Do you have a favorite? Tell me in the comments below.
Elevate your celebrations with the poppin Beautiful Balloons bundle that really fills your celebrations with excitement! This bundle has what every celebration needs … balloons, streamers, confetti and so much more to blow your loved ones away. You just can’t go wrong with this festive stamp set and dies bundle!
