Good evening everyone. Every year I make goodie bags for my son to take into school for all the kids in his class and this year I thought it might be a good idea to make a little hand stamped card and place it inside his goodie bags. I figured it couldn't hurt to help 'get my name out' so to speak.
I knew the kids would probably throw them away so I didn't want to put a whole lot of time and effort into these. I decided to make small 3x3 cards and I kept my stamping to a minimum.
I began by cutting out all of my card stock and then I ran my old olive paper through my big shot machine using my Elegant Lines embossing folder. Now this folder does not have the design on the entire front so I had to be suryand place my small strip of card stock on the embossed areas. I was able to fit 2 pieces at a time onto my embossing folder.
Then I began stamping all of my pumpkin images. With these I stamped 6 or so at a time. The stamping part was fun and it went rather quickly. I didn't get too fussy and I didn't even use my stamp-a-ma-jig. My pumpkin image is layered onto pumpkin pie card stock and that's about it. I will stamp Happy Halloween inside and have my son sign the cards. I hope the mom's like them! I was even thinking of making some more of these cards and put them inside the treat bags I give out on Halloween evening.
Well, until tomorrow then...have a great rest of the evening. Thanks for stopping by.
