Pun Fun Trio

For a while there I was stuck on square cards. Now I'm going back to cards with a kraft base. I've had a lot of ideas pop into my head the past few days and started keeping a little catalog of my own sketches. I wanted to make a bunch of CAS cards and ever since I got my new SU Heart to Heart punch I've wanted to use it. I also haven't used any of my SU stamps in a while so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to find a new way to use the Pun Fun set. This was supposed to be a set of four but I botched the first one so now it's a set of three.

I decided to keep the images simple. Instead of colouring them in, I just added accents with a red Copic marker, white gel pen and subtle sparkle with my Atyou Spica glitter pen. I really like how these turned out so I'll probably use the same design to make some of my Christmas cards. A boutique downtown here has ordered 35 Christmas cards from me for the end of October and I haven't even started. Now I have some great ideas after making this set.
