More Quick Cards

Here's a sneak peak at another classic and simple design that I have been favoring lately. It uses the cuttlebug and embossing folders and SU's sentiment set called sincere salutations.

I have started to make some end of the year gifts for teachers etc and am torn between making sets of these cards. I am either going to use 5 or 6 various colors and various sentiments OR make sets of a smaller "note card" size using another favorite set of mine "roses in winter". I haven't decided which I will go with yet, so in the meantime I am just papercrafting when I can/what I can.

Busy Busy Busy

Things here have been so busy lately, it is crazy. Can you believe it is already May 1st? Only 1 1/2 months until the school year is out. (Better get started on those teacher gifts everyone!) I happened to look ahead on my calendar and realized that Saturday is the last CCD class for my son, so I whipped up some note cards for his teacher as a Thank you gift. These went together super fast and as you can see I followed the same basic layout/card sketch design. I used decorative paper up top, coordinating ribbon across the seam and coordinated mat for the focal point image and basic sentiment in black ink on bottom 1/2 of the white card. If you need to get a bunch of cards done fast - this is a great card sketch to use.
