Thankful Note Set

My Mama Sheila, who happens to be one of my downline, is having her first ever Stampin' Up! Workshop tomorrow and she has asked me to assist her. I'm really excited for her!  She wanted to demonstrate the Envelope Punch Board but does not have it, so I told her I would help her out and come up with a few things. I did an file folder card a few weeks ago that she loved, so we redid it into a fall make-n-take. I wish I had thought to take pictures!  I will try to remember to take my camera tomorrow so you can see what we came up with!  I am also going to demonstrate how to do an envelope and a card box to go along with this cute little set of cards that I came up with for the challenges at Fab Friday and The Friday Mashup!
The challenge at The Friday Mashup! is to create a project with leaves or a tree and the color orange.  I started by making a set of 4 note cards that are 4"x4.5"
I used the baby wipe technique to stamp my leaf, using Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron ink. The background DSP comes from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit.  I then created envelopes for each card and the box. For the box, I used an 8.5" square sheet of Crumb Cake, scored the first time on the Envelope Punch Board at 3.5" and 4.5" The envelopes are made from the retired Neutrals Paper Stack. I'm glad I still have these sitting around. I have been making lots of envelopes using it and don't feel as bad "wasting" a whole sheet since it is retired. :) I also used it for the belly band of my box.

I think these will make great teacher gifts!
