Bingo game cards

Backtracking a bit, I want to show you these Bingo cards I made when I went home for the holidays. I made sets of cards for various family members and hope that they'll enjoy their Bingo cards every year on Christmas Eve in the future, as it has been a tradition in my husband's family for years.
By adding the sewing machine stitching around each border, it not only permanently adhered all the layers together, it now eliminates worry about anything coming apart the way paper crafts sometimes tend to do, plus this dainty threaded accent also creates a tailored keepsake edge. I really like the colorful cheer of all the pieces together too.
I almost forgot about making the game pieces, but they were easy to whip up. I used Stamin' Up's Bingo Background stamp along with the Jolly Bingo Bits set. White cardstock was the best choice for stamping the Bingo image, as I had less of a clean, bold look when using confetti white or confetti cream. Very vanilla would be my second best preference.
