a fun set of 4 coordinating cards

This started out as my attempt to produce multiple versions of a similar card so that I could "quickly" turn out a nice little set. I found that I'm not very good at the "quickly" part, LOL, as I end up tweaking and customizing each card as I go (rather than truly doing them "production line" style). But I like the result. These are all blank inside, because I wanted them to be fairly general-purpose. I think I will try to make up another set of 4 more with specific greetings and then put the 8 together as a "set".

The patterned paper is all from Fancy Pants Delight - scraps I had in my stash! What a fun way to cook up a coordinating set. The sentiments are PTI Take 3: Summer, Round & Round, and Wise Owl, which is also where that cute little Copic-colored owl can be found.  The flower and gems are Creative Charms, brads and buttons are miscellaneous from my stash.


Here is a closer look at each card:

Debbie your cards are beautiful. You're great at tweaking...LOL! I really enjoyed my visit to your blog today. So many lovely cards! I'll be back! And if you ever want to talk about teaching, I'm your girl! I loved teaching math to students and teachers. Now that I work at home, I miss the camaderie and "teacher talk." Have a great day!
