Teacher's Gift Card Set

Here's the first of three posts showing some simple cards that I created for my Isaac's PreSchool Teachers, Ms. Mehringer and Mrs. Schepers. {I made chocolate chip cookies for the Aides!!}. This paper-line is Wisteria, by Basic Grey. The cardstock is Bordering Blue by Stampin' Up!, I think. Or it may be the other soft gray blue, I just can't think of the name right now....

Anyhoo.... last Christmas I gave these two teachers a variety of my handmade greeting cards and they just couldn't stop thanking me for them, so I decided to do the same thing, but make just some simple(R) notecards for them. No Ribbon... GASP, I KNOW! Just stamping, paper, and some punches. No pop-dots, or even embellies. I didn't want them to have to worry about having to add even MORE postage to the already un-Godly rate that it is now, for the additional thickness of the cards from knots in ribbons or brads. So, thin it is!

This WISTERIA BASIC GREY paper is available at PRECIOUS SCRAPS; who I am seriously LUCKY and HONORED to be a Designer for! BEV is awesome at lavishing me {and the other designers, too!} with SUPAH wonderful papers and goodies to create with!

Like I said before, these are simpler cards, nothing elaborate here, but still, I think ANYTHING handmade is better than store-bought! And these papers make these cards pretty just by themselves! I also put the matching envelope in the picture, if you didn't notice. I always stamp the envelopes for an added personal touch!
I hope they like their card-sets! Check back for two more posts of the other seven co-ordinating cards that I made using the Porcelain Basic Grey paper set that is also available at Precious Scraps!
Enjoy your day!

I can't imagine those teachers not being delighted! Their only problem will be - who deserves being sent one. If they are all different, they'll want to keep each one for inspiration.
Thanks for sharing.
