MDS Monday - Packed For You

Good morning!  Were you wondering if I was ever going to post?!  Things have been a little crazy in our house over the last month and although we've been settled in our new place for about a week now, I decided to catch up on some much needed planning before I started posting again.  So I apologize for my absence and hope to be back to regular posting from now on:)

So we will start the week of with MDS Monday and the Packed for You FREE download (134687).  The timing couldn't be better on this download and the fact that it's free is even better.  With the end of the school year coming up - this is the PERFECT teachers gift.  Take a look at what I did...
It is the perfect size for 3x3 mini note cards and envelopes.  I made 4 note cards using a new set - Label Love and coordinating punch (available to order May 31st).  The back pack could easily fit 8 cards and envelopes, so I will make up another set of these little gems.  I chose colors that coordinated with the back pack - Pool Party and Island Indigo and kept them simple.  They took all of about 15 minutes to whip up!  Here's a closer look...
The card base measures 3"x6" and is scored at 3".  Then a 2-3/4"x2-3/4" piece of whisper white cardstock was run through the Big Shot using one of the Needlepoint Border embossing folders (129383).  Then the greeting was stamped with coordinating ink and punched out.  The only one that has an extra step is the baby card...
The greeting on this one was stamped twice - once in Island Indigo and once in Pool Party.  I punched out the centre scalloped part using the 7/8" scallop circle punch.  Simple but sometimes that's all you need:)

So now that you have seen a quick and easy teachers gift, head on over to my online store and download this Packed for You template (134687) for FREE.  Don't have MDS?  Download the free 30-day trial while you're in my store and give it a try!  Easy Peasy:)

Thanks for stopping by!
