Gift Note with Scallops

As you probably already know, I have three children: the "big kids," Edward and Emily and "the baby," Maci Ellen. When the big kids were little, I liked to put little notes in their lunch boxes or book bags so they wouldn't miss me during the day. Now the baby will be starting kindergarten in August and I'm already planning to do the same for her.

Today's post is one of these little notes that would be perfect to attach to a gift, tuck inside a lunch box or briefcase or give to someone to tell them that you care. It is so simple and only takes a couple of minutes to make. The card base is Melon Mambo card stock and was trimmed slightly on the front right side so that the olive green eyelet border would show. The half circle on the left side was punched out and trimmed before adhering to the folded edge of the card. The flower detail was stamped onto Whisper White Card stock, watercolored, cut out and adhered with a dimensional to the card. For added dimension, I added some micro beads to the center. The sentiment is a rub-on from the Chit Chat rub-ons pack.

So easy. There's no excuse not to tell someone that you care!
