Just Breathe

By | December 8, 2017

It’s finals time for my daughter and her boyfriend in college!!!  That can be such a stressful time of year, especially with the holidays looming.  I know they’ll both do great, but I also know they both love getting little surprises to lift their spirits.

This past weekend, I worked on putting together some “finals” care packages with fun treats to let them know we’re thinking of them and wishing them well.  I also included a small note card in each package.  I thought the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set was PERFECT for the occasion!

I kept these pretty simple.  I used my favorite Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in the background and stamped a few coordinating snowflakes.  Then I just layered some of those terrific die cuts that come with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  You can buy these two products in a bundle for 10% off at my online store.

I mounted everything on Whisper White Notecards.  Easy peasy.

The only part of these cards that took a little time and effort was the sentiment.  I cut them out by hand so the white background would contrast with the background yet not cover too much of it up.

As a final touch, I added a bow created with the Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.  That ribbon is one of my favorites because it’s so tiny.  It makes it easy to add to a card without creating too much bulk.

They may be simple, but I love the way they turned out … cheerful and festive.
