Baroque Motifs card set

A while ago I made a set of 6 cards in a little box for my mum but just haven't gotten around to putting them on my blog until now. Baroque is one of my most favourite stamp sets. You can make a really nice card quite quickly using this set which is great. Here is the card set:When I made this set of cards I wanted to use the same 3 colours but have different greetings on them for a mixture of occasions. I love Certainly Celery and Elegant Eggplant together which I have to thank Di for as those of you who know her know that she absolutely LOVES Celery. I was at her house one day and we made a card using these colours together and have loved the combo ever since.

These cards have a tent opening. You can see that the layout is basically the same but I have changed the colours around and used different ribbons on each.
Supplies: white taffeta ribbon, certainly celery wide grosgrain ribbon, elegant eggplant and certainly celery ink and cardstock and greetings from level 1 hostess set and boho backgrounds

These cards have a side opening. Again they have the same layout as each other just alternating the colours. I've added some brads and ribbon.

Supplies: Cetainly Celery brads and used the paper piercer and mat pack to position them, elegant eggplant grosgrain ribbon, wide celery grosgrain ribbon, word window punch and greetings from Level 1 hostess set and God's blessings.

These cards also have a tent opening. On these cards I've thread ribbon through the front layer of the card using the horizontal slot punch.
Supplies: white taffeta ribbon, celery wide grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch and greetings from Level 1 hostess set.
