I said I would be back with a card set and this is it! I made this with my sister-in-law in mind. My brother and his wife (and kiddos) are buying a house and I though the sil could use a couple of cards to mail to family and or friends! If I gave them to my brother I think they would just collect dust! :) He can take a peek at them though! LOL!
I'll start with the packaging. After making the cards I thought a pretty container to hold them was in order. I started with a Crystal Clear Box (purchased from clearbags.com) and wrapped a piece of designer paper around the bottom half and adhered in place. I then decorated the box so that it has the same feel and look as the cards. However I used the Congrats sentiment since this is basically my card to her.
I then filled the decorated box with four cards. I used the same design on all of the cards except switched up the image I stamped just a bit. Two cards have the moving boxes and the other two have the cute little moving van (I just love that van!).
Here is a picture of one of the cards with the moving van.
If you are wondering - yes, I did sew the buttons in place using a bit of linen thread. I just cannot leave buttonholes naked... they look so lonely that way. I know - WEIRD! :)
Finally - here is a shot of the set all together. I just need to add four envelopes and it will be all set!
