Teacher's Cards

My husband who is retired and is now a substitute teacher is subbing for a teacher whose father just died. My husband asked me tonight if I could please make him 2 large sympathy cards that the kids in his 2 classes could sign. Of course he needs them tomorrow! Well, it is near my bedtime but of course I was thinking that with all this "stuff" I have, I should certainly be able to come up with something. Well, here are my 5 minute results. The first card is some awesome masculine paper that I found in my stash of go togethers. (Yes, I do have a file of papers that I consider go-togethers - 2 or more papers that match) This paper is from The Paper Studio called Black Brown Tiles, and Black Brown Argyle. The inside is a taupe from those Stack Packs at Joann's and is stamped with the sentiment from The Stamp Doctor ( The ribbon is a black/beige check from Michaels. The base of the card is vanilla. The ink used is SU Close to Cocoa.

The second card is SU bashful Blue background; Close to Cocoa for borders and the paper is Courtyard Flowers from Chatterbox. The stamp inked in Close to Cocoa is from Paper Inspirations. Brown brads from a collection at Joann's rounds out the corners.

You make great cards under pressure. It doesn't give you time to over think them.
