Thank You - Pumpkin Pie DSP

Materials (All SU! unless otherwise noted):
Whisper White CS cut in thirds (8 1/2 x 3.67") 3/page scored at 4"
Pumpkin Pie CS
DSP, Pumpkin Pie 109170 3.67 x 4"
Ribbon Striped, Pumpkin 110715
Scallop Punch, Circle of Friendship Stamp Set 107137
Pumpkin Pie Ink
1" circle punch
1 1/4" circle punch, Dimensionals

To save on paper I made these cards slightly smaller and was able to get 3 on a standard sheet of CS, and get more pieces out of the DSP. Adhere DSP to card front. Using the larger circle punch line up half way up paper, lining up circle using the notches on the side (half way point) perfectly cuts a half circle notch. Adhere the stamped circle cut image to the scalloped piece. Then line it up inside the notch before adhering to card base. Tie on ribbon. Done. Voila!
I made fourteen of these cards for ancillary teacher gifts (reading, math, PE, art, bus driver, etc). They were attached to a bag of Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies.
 
It took 2 interrupted hours to complete all 38 cards. It was the last night before school and the kids were - kids!
 
The reason I made so many is I am giving 20 of them to the Hugo Tornado victims from Sunday, May 25th. A stamping sister is organizing thank yous for all the help everyone has been receiving in their neighborhood. You may contact her at christinegrygar@yahoo.com if you are interested in donated thank you cards or postage stamps also.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
