I LOVE, Lovely Letters!

Thanks for continuing to stop by and take a peak at my creations!  Today I'm sharing something that you can quickly create for teachers, graduates and summer time hosetess gifts. 

 This project uses two more of my favorite things that are retiring.  I know it's a bit self indulgent.....but I hope you'll enjoy them too!

Center stage on this card... "Lovely Letters Alphabet"  (115030 w)  or (127796 c)
Lovely Letters Alphabet Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up! 

You can see no matter what letter you choose, it will be crisp with a touch of flourish.  Very sophisticated, but not boring.

I've punched a circle and a scallop circle and mounted them on the Espresso shape cut from 
Two Tags Bigz Die (115954)
 Two Tags Stampin' Up! Bigz Die - by Stampin' Up!
 While both of these items will retire...and I probably won't be showing any new blog ideas with them....I don't know that I could ever part with these two tools.

Can you see the rich detailing on this die cut??  A couple cranks through the big shot and wala..a perfect scallop on one end and a pireced edge all around.
Ok, total bummer!  You have to just imagine it....I see that this photo doesn't show the detailing around the scallop.  But trust me!  It is there.

I trimed the card bottom with the International Bazzar DSP (126920)
International Bazaar Designer Series Paper

and trimmed the top with my favorite embossing folder, Perfect Polka Dots (117335) 
for a perfect notecard.  

What about a stack of these for a graduate, a teacher, as a hostess gift?  Can't you see using my design with different papers for a rainbow of notecards.?  You just can't go wrong with having supplies like this at home.  You can create 6 or 8 of them faster than getting in the car and finding something at the store......and you did it yourself!

Let me know who you would give a stack of these too?   
Or better yet...would YOU enjoy a stack of these as a little gift?
Please comment below.

Thanks for stopping by!
