Are you a "Material Girl"? Check out this gift card set!

Linda Albrecht brings us this amazing card collection, for all of us girls!! Here is what she has to say about it...

"I thought that this would be a great gift for someone who likes to sew
and appreciates giving handmade cards to others. The container was
covered with Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" paper and a bit of "Fast
Lane" to trim out the edge of the top piece. I made the cards simple
and homespun to pick up the scissors and thread images in the Cosmo
Cricket "Material Girl" paper. Rather than using a lot of ribbon or
lace trims, I made my own by cutting the papers with a zig zag edged
scissors and by cutting white cardstock into strips that were edged with
a small scallop to resemble eyelet trim. Adding "holes" to the
scalloped edge strips by inserting a large darning needle into the paper
also helps to mimic the effect. A few hand stitches, buttons, and some
machine sewing completes the look for the homespun note and gift cards."

Love that Linda put all of the gorgeous cards in this lovely little suitcase. It's adorable. :)

Here is the card collection. Linda incorporated paper, embellishments and stamps, and WOW, what a variety of cards she came up with.

Linda also used papers from WeRMemory Keepers and some of their cute stamps too.

We have been so lucky here at AllyScraps to have Linda guest design for us this month. She is such a scrapbook treasure. We have some good news though.... she has agreed to come back again... can't wait!! Check out Linda's blog, it's filled with tons of inspiration.

I absolutely love these cards and can't wait to make them. I ran on over to Ally Scraps this morning and bought me some Material Girl paper, buttons, and 2 more of the WeRMemory Keepers stamps!
