Tart and Tangy Card Set


I've been wanting to try and make some type of card holder for some time. I found this pattern "somewhere" in cyberspace. Sorry I can't find it again to give credit to the person who gave the measurements. The white ribbon actually ties in a knot. The stamp set is Tart and Tangy from Stampin Up. The inks used were old olive, pumpkin pie, rose red and real red. The paper was Whisper White, SU DP and Old Olive. It's been so much fun to get back into my stamp room and make something.
These are the four cards and envelopes I made to go in the card holder. All of the stamps and paper are from Stampin Up. The embellishments were ribbons, brads, white gel pen and punches. I hope you enjoy looking. Have a great day!
This card has "Orange you cute" stamped on it. I love this paper!
This strawberry card was fun. I wanted to write "Thank you Berry Much!" on it, but forgot. Then I decided to leave it as a blank note card.This card was the toughest one for me. It's a gate card with a belly band. I added the pearls for lack of any other ideas of how to jazz it up.
I stamped one piece of fruit on the front of each of the envelopes. Have a great week! I think this makes up for some of my lack of posting over the last month.
