Today’s blog hop challenge was for us to use anything and show off our style! What fun!! Now I have so many different styles I like to use, it was hard to choose just one! So I decided to show you the one I like to use when I make cards to give as a gift set.

I used the fabulous Fall Flowers Digi Set & Bonus Paper Pricking Frame for my cards today.

These cards are fun and so easy to make! I took white core cardstock, folded it and embossed the front panel. Next you take a sanding block and lightly sand off the embossed paper.  Then pick out your digi and color it to match your cardstock.

You can then add a strip of your favorite dp or do like I did and use scraps that coordinate with your cardstock. Then add a border to put around your image and a few rhinestones and you are done!

These are perfect for gift sets or to sell at craft fairs. If you have kids these are easy enough that they can help you out.
