Masculine Note Card set ...

Good morning! It's my Design Team Day over on the Stamp Annie*Thing  Blog and I had several ideas pop into my head about what to create for this week.  Now I saw several different challenges over the past week that inspired me, so I went in that direction.

My daughter, Katie, has one male staff member in her Educational Team at school. I've created Note Card sets for the rest of her Educational Team so it was only appropriate that I make a Masculine Set.

I made 6 cards for the set, with matching envelopes featuring the One Cool Hombre' stamp set from Stamp Annie*Thing. I created my own Design Paper, which was super fun to do with the One Cool Hombre' stamps.



Once the set was complete, I tied it together with AMS Cherry and French Roast Twine ...


and the next step was to put together my packaging. I stamped the border and cactus onto an SRM 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" Glassine Bag, and then tied my tag on with the Cherry and French Roast Twine. I used an SRM Fancy Sticker Sentiments #55004 Thanks for my tag, because the sentiment is so true!
 

Now for the challenges I mentioned earlier.

Last week was the start of the 350 Cards & Gift Week Challenges over at Moxie Fab World so the Card Set Challenge in the Moxie Fab World was my first inspiration. I made 6 cards vs. the 3 or 4 that was requested.

Now the design of my Note Card set is based on The Friday Mashup Challenge #109. There are two challenges, as always ... create a project using the Sketch they provided, create a set of cards, or Mash It Up and create "a set of cards using the sketch". The Sketch was my inspiration, so I Mashed It Up!


Now I have one more set of Note Cards that I'll be sharing with you this weekend, and then part of the Educational Team Gifts will be complete.

Until next time ... Enjoy!
