Joyful Tidings - Cardmaking Kit

Don't have time to make cards, you might want to look at our great cardmaking kits.  These kits come with most the supplies needed to complete 12 beautiful handcrafted cards. The additional supplies to make these cards are Black & Juniper & Pebble  ink, Buffalo Plaid embossing folder.  You also get the assembly guide, card bases and envelopes. 
I love these kits, they are so easy to modify here's my take using Ruby and Heather.
For this first card, I embossed the Ruby cardstock piece with black ink, I really love this look.  I was reminded of this technique from my good friend Caroline.  Simply add ink on one side of the embossing folder, add the cardstock and voilĂ .
For this second card, I embossed the Black cardstock, sanded it to reveal the white core then inked it with Ruby ink.
I love how these turned out, pretty and masculine all in one. thanks for stopping by!
