Two more card sets

Can you tell I'm on a roll with this "new to me" technique for packaging cards?
Here are two more sets I did....they were fairly easy as I used the same chalking method described in this post. Making two of each card sped things up a bit too. Without further ado - here they are...

The sets contain four cards - one each of these designs.

I've already given both sets away to a friend (one for her and one for her to give to a co-worker). Guess I'll have to get busy and make up some more!

Stamps used in making these cards include:
  • Inkadinkado Utopiary Clear Set-- Tree
  • Inkadinkado Birds Galore Clear Set - Bird
  • Scrappy Cat Flights of Fancy Clear Set -- Butterfly
  • Making Memories Flowers Clear Set - Flower
  • Provo Craft Clear Stamp -- Friends
  • Stampabilities Small Gerber Daisy -- Daisy behind the page protector

Those cards are absolutely beautiful, and I LOVE your pins!! I had seen that packaging idea before, but it never hit me to use it for cards. (I originally saw it as a package for gift tags.) Thanks for the great ideas!!

Hey, I just noticed the ends of your pins. Did you bend them around at the end for that effect? I really, really like it, and I'd love to know how to get the look! :)

The packaging only fits about 4 to 5 cards comfortably -- with envelopes.....and YES, I did bend the pins around at the end. I have seen several hat pins with caps on them, but found no caps at Michaels. (I'm assuming they have to bought that way.) Hence my own "fix" to the problem -- bending the hat pin on the end!
