5 card set

Here's a 5 card set that I made for some challenges that I think worked out quite well. The first challenge was to make a card set using the colors Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bravo Burgundy and Blush Blossom. I chose to keep the theme of hearts, gingham, clean & simple and use the new Well Scripted stamp set throughout the set.

This card was made from a layout I saw here.

This card was made for a challenge of doing faux stitching on a die cut or punch. You just pierce holes and connect the dots with a marker. I used the scalloped edge punch for a few frills.

The layout of this card I made up. The challenge was to use a technique I've seen called "faux flower soft". You distress or shred the edges of a piece of paper and use those tiny bits to glue onto your card to add texture and fluff.

The challenge for this card was to find a scrapbook layout in the My Digital Studio program and convert it to a card. There's a bit of texturz embossing with the Big Shot. I used the scallop square punch for the corner pieces.

This card was for 2 challenges. One challenge was to use 3 inchies and 1 sentiment and no other stamping. I also used the faux stitching technique again on this one for the other challenge. The layout I made up myself.

Thanks so much for looking. I'd appreciate your comments about what you think of my set. I'm going to try to sell them to the gift store for Valentine's Day.
