For You

Using the Sweet Stop sketch #102 and the waltzingmouse sketch challenge to make mini cards, I created a thank you gift set for my daughter's Awana teacher. Tomorrow night is the last class so the mini card challenge was perfect. Oh yeah, I also used the Pretty Palette 03 challenge (from my time made easy) to use white/tangerine/light blue/aqua. For the card, I used the Hebrews 11:1 plain Jane from Verve overstamped with the large damask image from Damask Designs by Papertrey Ink. For the light blue layer, I used guide lines 2 also from PTI.
The little gift box was made using the creative card candy template from My Time Made Easy (Lauren Meader is so amazingly talented!!) and I forgot to put the ribbon closure on before I adhered the layers together, so I had to make my own slip in closure. The box and the mini cards are simply decorated using (once again) the large damask image from Damask Designs and the "for you" from a Verve set. I used a small damask image to decorate the front of the envelope.
The little cards measure 3x3, just perfect to fit into the little gift box. Aren't they so cute!

This is very cute! Love your project! I had to laugh when you said you forgot the closure for the box! I almost did the same thing! But it looks like you made yours work! Your cards are so pretty and I love how you used the Pretty Palette colors! Thanks for playing...we hope to see you again next week!
