Set of Cards - Teacher Gift


Hard to believe that we are at the end of another school year - my DS's finish on Wednesday - woohoo!.  Looking forward to getting to spend fun times together without the daily chore of homework and assignments.  We are all looking forward to getting to spend time on the water, play outdoors and generally have fun - therefore my blog will suffer and I won't be here as often as I would like... but hey!  it's only 8 weeks and I have set up some auto posts so that I can truly focus on my boys.

Want to share a set of cards that I made yesterday morning for one of my DS's to give to a helper in his school.  I used the new DeLovely range from Cosmo Cricket - boy do I ADORE these new papers.  I only purchased a 6x6 mini stack so I managed to get two cards from each sheet of 6x6!  
I used kraft card blanks with matching kraft envelopes.  Used my "ruffled bloom" stamp from Stampendous and coloured them with copics in YG03, B02 and BG15 and also a promarker in Cerise (as my copic in that shade was dry!).
I added machine stitching, gems from Papermania and Hero Arts, glossy accents (on one flower centre) and the sentiments are from Hero Arts, PTI and Papermania.
The kraft card blanks are from Paperchase (sold in Ireland through Awear).  I then packaged them up in a clear box from Clear Bags and made a thank you tag to attach.

I am entering them into the challenge on my partner in crafting crime which is school, teacher or student inspired creations.  Thanks so much for peeking - hope you have a wonderful day.
