Mass Production time!

There are some folks that automatically make two or more of a card every time they sit down to create. And, I know I should do it but I rarely do! But on Tuesday our school nurse called me from Hallmarks and said, "the cards here are all yucky - can you make me 9 thank you cards for our Lacrosse coaches?" I didn't have a lacrosse stamp but once she gave me the colors scheme I knew I could do it.

Oh, and they were getting gift cards so I made them into holders right away!

Card Materials:
Stamps: Thanks (from TAC's Gift with Purchase stamp set), stars (retired), Coach spelled out with Simple Bet
Accessories: pennant (clipart), Orange DCWV papers, palette ink, ribbon, foam dots, Jumbo star punch, scor pal

Once I finished my first card the way I liked it, I was able to quickly cut and stamp everything in assembly line fashion.
If you need the directions for this type of gift card holder, I'd be happy to send them to you, it's really quite easy!

PS. I've started taking preorders for the new Angel Company catalog coming out 1 July! If you order before 18 June I'll include a little thank you and all orders will include a coupon for $4 off your first order.
