Open House Make & Takes

Here are the two make & takes the ladies made at my Open House. They were both super simple and two different styles, but I loved the look of each. Both cards feature new INcolors, punches, & new DS papers.
The first one features the new, so pretty, Bella Rose DS paper, overlayed on Riding Hood Red cardstock. The bottom piece was scalloped using the new Scallop Edge punch. The stamp set used is Dreams du Jour. The pearl accent is from the Pretties kit. Markers were used to color bits of the stamped image in Old Olive and Pretty in Pink.The second card is clean and simple; not alot of fuss. It features the new Urban Garden DS paper--love the silhouettes, adhered to the new Baja Breeze cardstock. A single flower from Embrace Life was stamped tone-on-tone in Baja Breeze along the side. The greeting was stamped on the new Kiwi Kiss cardstock and punched with the Word Window punch. The color of the cardstock strip below the greeting is actually Not Quite Navy. I loved that I knew how to match this perfectly because in the new catalog, SU has added the names of coordinating colors for each pack of DS paper. So helpful!
