Gift set no. 2

I hope you're not bored of little boxes full of cards because this is all I have to show you at the moment! I made this one for an end-of-year teacher gift... I have a few more to make before the end of July but should manage it. Am making another on Saturday night with a group of stamping friends so that's another one to tick off the list!

I will be holding a class to make one of these during the summer. Date and venue still to be arranged but it's not to early to register your interest by emailing me!

I'm afraid the cards are remarkably similar to the last set - apart from colour and stamp set of course! I do tend to stick to the same designs; no point in reinventing the wheel!

This time I added a strip of ribbon for a handle - easy and cute!

Stamps: Polka Dots & Paisley (p51), Basic Phrases (p65)
Cardstock: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Whisper White (p86), 3/8” Grosgrain Ribbon - Certainly Celery (p86), Scallop Circle Punch (p80), 1¼” circle punch (p80), silver brads (p85)
