Bulk Cards

I had the urge to make some bulk cards today. It was so rainy and bleak outside, crafting seemed like the perfect way to spend some time. After my box of new SU goodies arrived I couldn't wait to have a play! I used the colours Real Red, Black and Whisper White to make these cards and thought this would qualify me for the Crazy 4 Challenges - Red, Black and White competition, alos the Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Bold and Bright! These colour combination certainly makes bold and bright cards.
I made six cards, nearly all are slightly different, because I changed my mind a bit as I went. I used my new SU Cottage Garden stamp set which was so much fun to stamp wherever I felt like! A nice change from colouring in the lines. I experimented with my new Sissix Top Note die and layered some with black and left some plain white. I pop-dotted some of the flowers to make them jump off the page a little.
This photo is pretty ordinary...but shows off the cards nicely if you ignore the reflection in the coffee table glass...I need to get better at photographing a group of cards. I used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the red card.
Here they all are lying flat...you can see in the first one I made I used the black and white stripe ribbon, but then I found a nicer, thicker all black ribbon and so I swapped over to that. I wouldn't mind doing a similar set in some different colours.
Thanks for looking today,
