Yesterday, I showed you the set of cards I made for Thomas' teachers
on his last day of preschool.
But his main teacher deserved a little special attention. I was inspired by the PTI blog hop photo:
When I saw that fancy place setting, I immediately thought of the fancy treat that might be served on one of those plates. Actually, I thought the cupcake card would make a cute place-card, with the person's name written on the hanging tag instead of "merci"... but that's for another day :) I needed a french thank you card right now.
In addition to the card, I made a gift-card holder using the Clear and Simple Stamps "mini tri-fold 1" die. (It's larger than the PTI lunchbox note and the giftcard holder, in case you're wondering.) I thought it would be fun to decorate it to match the main card. The cupcake wrapper, the same swirl of frosting - we're seeing a cupcake here, right?
(When we delivered the present yesterday, there was a gift-card in there, I promise...just showing my level of procrastination again here... hee!)
Here's the set. For both, I stamped the cupcake wrappers with PTI's gingham background in black, and stamped flowers from "in bloom" onto some scraps of lime green paper (I know it's SU papers, and I think the color is kiwi kiss.) The "frosting" was embossed with an SU folder and sprayed with a studio calico shine mist.
I wanted the flowers at the top to look like whimsical, edible flowers, so I cut in between the petals and curled the blooms a bit. That made all the difference in giving the card some movement.
Hope you like my set - and I hope Thomas' teacher was a bit wowed too :)
Thanks for hopping over here - have a great weekend!
