June 2023 Card Club Alternative With So Refreshing

Here's is my first alternative card for my June 2023 Online Card Club. When I make my alternatives, I use the supplies that come in the card club to show how to change the cards up a bit.

With a $39.50 monthly subscription to my Monthly Online Card Club, members get $21-$27 worth of Stampin' Up! product (DSP, ribbon, embellishments, etc), card kits to make 2 of each of the 3 cards I make every month, exclusive video tutorial, pdf for cards, & shipping. You'll also have the option to add-on either the stamp set or bundle that is featured that month to your monthly subscription.

Exclusive for Current Card Club Members...When You Choose to Add-On Either the Featured Stamp Set or Bundle, I'll Pay the Shipping & Sales Tax For You!

That's a Savings of 18%!

The Darling Details Bundle is Featured This Month!

I wanted to use a bundle that wasn't just floral, and I thought the So Refreshing Bundle was perfect! The pitcher and flowers that are in the bundle work beautifully with this card layout. 

The beautiful lace frame and shimmery floral die-cut above the pitcher were made with dies in the Darling Details Bundle, which is featured in this month's card club. When I make my alternatives, I use what comes in one of my card kits from the actual club cards. Since, I do all of the embossing and die-cutting of non-stamped die-cuts for the club's card kits, these die-cuts were in this kit.

My card club members will get a half pack of the Glorious Gingham Designer Series Paper (DSP), and they'll use some of it to make the cards. They'll have plenty leftover to make more cards, too. For today's card, I chose the Lemon Lime Twist version of the gingham paper. The four other colors of gingham in the pack are Berry Burst, Blueberry Bushel, Pecan Pie, & Pretty Peacock.

They're also getting a half pack of the Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper, and I used the Lost Lagoon color in the pack for the floral die-cut above the pitcher.

There are two more things my card club members will get in their club packet, and I used them on this card, too. They will be getting a full roll of the White Herringbone Ribbon and a half pack of the Tinsel Gems Four-Pack.

I thought the ribbon was perfect to put across the top of the card along with the greeting banner. I used a small gem in Lemon Lime Twist to the center of the lime slice on the greeting tag, and I put a large gem in the same color on each of the flower centers on the Soft Shimmer die-cut.

Of course, I just had to stamp another pitcher of limeade to the inside of the card. I love how the lime slices look inside the limeade, too.
