Cricut-less Set of Cards

**** Click HERE for my current GIVEAWAY!! ***** (only need 33 more followers before I can give away my prize!! :))

Hope everyone's doing great today!! I made this set of cards a couple days ago and am just getting the chance to get them posted today. I actually didn't even use my cricut on these!! I'm just starting to get into punches... they're so much quicker than setting up everything on the cricut... Plus, I can punch anywhere in the house! A great advantage with the kids! :)

I love these colors together... 

I used a DCWV textured stack, embossed the paper and then distressed it with a sanding block. I used a total of 3 different embossing folders to get the different textures. I also inked around everything with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I used a butterfly punch by Martha Stewart and stamped the butterflies with Distressed Music background stamp by Pink By Design. 

All the sentiments on these cards came from the Scripted Year set by Pink By Design. 

Hope you like!! I still have a couple projects I need to share so be sure to come back tomorrow!! :)
