Rainbow card set for teachers

My son's last day of pre-K was a couple of weeks ago (sniff, sniff), and I made a colorful but simple set of cards for each of his teachers.

All of the cards use the pencil image from Papertrey Ink's Happy Trails.  Three of the cards have the sentiment "just a note" from Ribbon Tails.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Happy Trails, Ribbon Tails)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Double Ended Banner die, Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder

The other three cards use the "thank you" sentiment from Papertrey's Vintage Picnic.  I added texture to each card base with the Linen & Canvas impression plate.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Stampin' Up! (Not Quite Navy, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Happy Trails, Vintage Picnic)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Not Quite Navy, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Double Ended Banner die, Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder

I wrapped the stack of cards and envelopes with some baker's twine and slipped them into a kraft bag, which went into a gift basket with flowers picked out by my little guy.

Here's a closer look at the tag, made with Papertrey's Tag Sale #3 die and Vintage Picnic.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Stampin' Up! (Concord Crush)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Vintage Picnic)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Tool:  Papertrey Ink (Tag Sale #3 die)
Other:  The Twinery (baker's twine)

My daughter is still in school until June 26, so I may be doing another set of cards for her teacher later this month.  I'll be sure to share if I do.

Thanks for visiting today!

I have just pinned this great card set. I do this for my daughter's teachers too and they really appreciate it. The basket of flowers is the perfect touch.

What a fabulous design for a card set. And, the presentation just takes it over the top. Now, I am remembering that you had told me you were doing something with those pencils--I'm pinning and stealing this for sure. And, you stamping is just perfect--how did you do that so many times?
