Gift pack of cards

I am such a bad Goddaughter and niece! I forgot to send a card/gift to my aunt for Mother's Day! What's really bad is that I didn't even think of it until June! I am spending the week w/ her and our family at the beach this coming week, so I decided to make her a gift and give it to her personally since she lives out of state. I really wanted to use my new Kitchen Sink Stamps because I am in LOVE with them! When I tried to use the daisy set, I couldn't come up w/ a color combo that I liked, so I went back to the hydrangea and the card I made earlier this week. It's very similar, but I don't care! I didn't have a lot of time to work on it, in between packing, babysitting, and just regular family stuff!

I wanted to put the cards and envelopes in a container so they wouldn't get smashed in transit! Since I just received my latest SU! order, I had all of my stamp cases (because I leave my stamps unmounted and spray cling spray on the backs). So, I chose the smallest one, and they fit perfectly! I stamped my favorite label from Label Classics and ran it through my Xyron so it acts like a real label and hold the tissue paper together. The case was so boring, I had to decorate it a little bit! So, I stamped the largest hydrangea and placed it in the corner.

This card did use the daisy set, and was a rough draft for the card pack. But, I wasn't altogether happy and excited about how it turned out, so I am just using it for my aunt's actual greeting card.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!!!
