Considering the fact that I have so much patterned paper and embellishments at my house, you'd think that I should have a pile of cards made and ready to hand out for any occasion. The reality is that every time I need a card for something, I scramble to quickly put something together. Maybe that will change someday, but for now there is not a nice, neat stack of ready made cards.
Last Wednesday was my kids' last day of school and that morning I realized that we needed cards for their teachers. We did have a small gift ready for the teachers, but no card. I quickly worked at my scrapbook desk and put three similar cards together.
Thanks to the beautiful pre-made flowers from my friend Tessa's etsy shop, Precocious Paper, these cards had a perfect focal element and came together quickly.
The patterned paper bases of the cards are from a DCWV card set that I've had for years that I just uncovered in a box recently. Still love those patterns and I was happy to use the cards.
With the addition of some label stickers and a handwritten "thank you", these cards were ready to go.
I'm so thankful for the great teachers our kids had this year. Now it's time to enjoy summer break!
