Tart & Tangy Collection

So I've decided that I would like to make gift card sets using some of my favorite sets ever since I made the Pun Fun one here. The next set I chose to do was SU Tart & Tangy since the occasions mini catalogue has been extended and this set is so cute especially with summer right around the corner!

This set of 4 cards was made entirely with SU products. They use SU whisper white, old olive, pumpkin pie, real red and bashful blue cardstock. The SU designer paper series Summer picnic (I'll have to stock up in this before the catalogue finishes). The ink is all old olive, real red and pumpkin pie. Ribbon is real red and old olive.

Card 1: Apple

Card 2: Cherry

Card 3: Orange

Card 4: Strawberry - This one is a bit off on the stamping because I still just have to use my ink pads as I don't have the markers (which was difficult on the strawberry).

All of the cards are standard 4.25" x 5.5". They all use the SU scallop punch and 1 1/4" circle punch. The sentiments are from the SU set Short & Sweet. I don't know why but I have some sort of need to have a sentiment on my cards. They just look unfinished without to me; yet when other people don't have sentiments I think it looks fine. I guess it's just one of those weird things!
