Make A Set at A Blog Named Hero

There's a new challenge up at A Blog Named Hero and we're making sets of three.  A set of at least 3 cards that go together by theme or design.


When I make sets of cards it's usually to give as a gift to someone and I tend to make 5 cards that cover birthday, sympathy, thanks, get well and thinking of you.


When I design the card I like to keep it fairly simple and use the same design for each card but with different colours.  I also make sure that the card is not too bulky so that it can fit into a standard envelope and not need extra postage.


I did some simple stamping with Shadow Inks for the Floral Blossom image and clear embossed the Woodgrain stamp on coloured strips of card stock.  I added a thin strip of black corrugated paper for some extra texture and definition and finished off with Stickles, Enamel Accents and smooth gems.



Please join the challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.  You have 2 weeks to play and you also have a chance at winning a gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.

I can't wait to see your projects! Thanks for stopping by today!
