Come To Gather Card

Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

The Come To Gather Suite is sure to get your autumn off to a creative start! The Gather Together stamp set has the perfect combination of images and greetings, plus coordinating dies to make adding accents and layers a snap.

I love how the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper combines traditional, earthy fall colours like Cajun Craze and Early Espresso with pops of fresh, on-trend colours like Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron. Lets get to creating!
