2020 Feb - Party at the Country Club


Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

Welcome to this month’s Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop.

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in.

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper (DSP)  in our projects.

We’re featuring the stunning Country Club DSP in January.  This paper is flying off the warehouse shelves – so get it quick!

Masquerade Meets Country Club 

As soon as I saw this particular pattern in the Country Club DSP it made me think of a jester at a Masquerade Ball.

And when I was looking at the Country Club Elements – I decided those little shields would make great glasses. Maybe I was influenced by the fact that I would be seeing Elton John in Concert – he could certainly wear these!
