Teacher Gifts – Card Sets


I forgot to share what I made for Colin's teachers this year.  He goes to a Montessori, so he has several teachers – 6 right now.  They each got a set of 10 cards.  Wanted to make more, but ran outta time. 

Each set was in a clear box with a matching bow.  Each card is embossed with a Cuttlebug or Quickutz embossing folder, along with some simple stamping added.  (No coloring = big timesaver.)  I used two of my favorite stamp companies: Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink.  Each envelope is stamped on the flap to match the cards.

The embossed background really brings the cards to life, even though they are simple.  I also covered some of the stamped images with smeared sitckles for fun.  The photos are bad (as usual for me), but here they are…

(ETA: That last card was inspired by Dawn McVey.  She rocks.)

I had fun Slip 'N Sliding with Audrey and Colin tonight.  Audrey was so happy to have me join her.  I will likely be sore tomorrow – off to rest. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by…
