Mini Card Sets


Today is my last day of school! I'm so happy summer is here, although I am sad to be losing the best class ever. I also was lucky to have two wonderful room moms this year, and to show my appreciation, I made them little sets of 3" cards and envelopes.


My inspiration for these came from my friend Linda Kaiser, who made cute sets using her Imagine. I decided to use some of my new Papertrey Ink stamps for mine.


The envelopes are cut at 3" from the Walk in My Garden cartridge, using patterned paper (not cardstock).


I used the same purse Linda used for her project. It's from Forever Young, cut at "Fit to Page." It fits the cards perfectly!

Katie,
First how sweet to give credit to Linda (she is another amazing crafter) but I LOVE that idea too! I would never had thought those envelopes were from Walk In The Garden! The whole idea is just amazing along with the cards and purse! I bet the Mom's were completely blown away by their gifts! As always LOVE it!
