Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! Its time for Back-To-School shopping and a gift for the teacher could help the year get off to a great start! Do you ever want to give a gift of cards but are afraid to take the time and effort? I love to give hand-made items as gifts. The cards for this gift set are pretty simple but when you add in the great Card Organizer box, you have a wonderful gift set.

Using 4 sentiments and one image, all from DRS Designs, I made this gift set. The card organizer is made from 2 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11" So Saffron Cardstock. The top detail is made with 2 strips of 12 x 12 Core'dinations cardstock. Using the new Impressabilities - Pebbles, I embossed the detail and then sanded to reveal the core of the cardstock. I stamped the image, Bloomin' Huge Flower (M1023) with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. I carefully cut them out and used the Scalloped Paisley Nestabilities for my leaves. Here is a close-up of my Card Organizer Box.

Each of the cards uses a different sentiment. All of these small sentiments fit perfectly into the Double Ended Tag die template from Spellbinders. I used Just A Note (B244), Happy Birthday (B250), Get Well Soon (B254) and Thank You! . Each card has a white cardstock panel that was dry embossed using the Pebbles Impressabilities. I also used the Labels 4 under my tags for a special touch.

I think these DRS Designs images make a quick and simple card look very elegant. This would make a great gift for the new Teacher, don't you think? Hope you are having a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!
