Quick Cards for Gifting and Giving


I'm sorry for being MIA for so long! The last couple months have gone by so quickly and this week I will finish the last of my finals (yay!) Cherry's birthday last week was a blast and Thanksgiving was wonderful. I hope the fall and winter have been treating all of you well ;) So for my first post back after the past two months I thought I'd share a quick little Christmas gift to whip up. I've made these over Thanksgiving weekend but haven't had the chance to snap pics of them and post until now. Using one all around stamp set (I believe the 2010 anniversary set from Papertrey Ink), I created this first round of simple cards from supplies I already had on hand. These took a couple hours to make two sets - one for my mom and one for my MIL. There are 4 of each card - 2 per set.






 
There is just a 4x4 piece of pattern paper paired with a stamped image that's been punched out with a circle punch and matted on scallop punched cardstock. Some of the cards I used an extra strip of 1.25" pattern paper in the smaller print, mostly to use up extra paper I have on hand. I also added pretty little punched borders, but overall the cards are very simple and no fuss. Plus they are flat for easy mailing, something I've noticed my relatives have a hard time with if I give them embellished cards. They are fun little notecards for people who aren't as into the crafting scene as I am. I can make a lot of these really quickly too, which makes them great for a simple gift. This is just the first batch that went in the big set I made for my moms. I'll be posting the rest of sets I made them and the sets I made for my sis and SILs later this week and next. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy and have a lovely Monday!
