CAS note card sets

Hi everyone and Happy Mother's day to all the moms out there. I hope that your family has been good to you and that you are enjoying your day. I am excited because we finally have some sunshine here in Buffalo and as a matter of fact, we had 2 sunny days in a row! Small victories, ya know lol.

Anyway, I would like to share 2 very simple and easy note card sets that I originally made for my daughters to give to their school teachers. I got the idea after making one and then thought since there are 4 images in the stamp set that it would be a great set. I used my beloved Serene Silhouettes set from Sweet N Sassy stamps for them. I hope you like them.

Here is the first card that idea came from:

Here is the first set

To create these cards I made a stencil by using my oval nestabilites to cut an opening out of acetate. I then sponged ink in 4 different colors using the stencil and stamped the image with brown ink in the center of my sponged oval. I added a sentiment, rounded the bottom right corner, and finished with brown satin ribbon.

The second set:

I did the same sponging as in the first set but stamped the images in black ink instead. I chose to keep this set even simpler by not adding ribbon or rounding the corner.

I also made a sympathy card (not as part of a set)

I think that they will make nice easy gifts for the teachers or anyone else for that matter. I hope that I was able to give you some ideas and inspiration today.

Thank you for stopping by- God bless!
