little notes...

I am always rushing at the end of the school year trying to get things done, so this year I am determined that these note cards will be done by Valentines day!
I couldn't make these work with the lines stamped so what I did was stamped a clear transparency sheet, laid that on my makeshift light box (a desk lamp pointed up with my Cuttlebug B plate on it) and stamped the design. The edges of each card were colored with a not quite navy marker. I think it really makes really nice yet subtle edge. The last card in this set was done on different paper. I like it on the Gina K paper better. My goal is to make four sets with different patterns and a cute box for them to sit on the teachers desk.

I hope he likes them.

stamps: pti guide lines, ms flourished monograms, target alpha
ink: bashful blue, not quite navy
paper: gina K 80# pure luxury white
accessories: not quite navy marker

These are really classy looking! I'm impressed that you're getting these done so far in advance... I'm such a bad procrastinator. :oops:
