Technique Tuesday: Notecard Set - for Baby

Need a gift?
Recently I needed a gift for a friend who is having a baby (tomorrow!!).  I knew I wanted to make a set of notecards for her. She loves to stamp and scrap, so I knew she'd appreciate the sentiment!  I grabbed the Lullaby Designer Series Paper and cut 1 1/2" x 5" strips of it.  I picked one sheet that I liked both sides.  The great thing about the piece I picked is that it works for both boy or girl (since we don't know the gender yet). 
I stamped a quick sentiment from Lots of Thanks (clear mount #129690/ $16.95).  This is a great stamp set, especially right now when we need LOTS of thank you cards (come back tomorrow for another gift set of notecards).  
Zoo Babies is the name of the adorable stamp set that I used for the baby lion - you can order it using #130456 for clear mount ($19.95).   Did I mention that I used a set of our notecards with envelopes?  Super simple, especially when you need a gift.  You get 20 notecards and envelopes for $5.95 (#131527).
This picture features how I wrapped it all together using the Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon and a Sneak Peek of a new stamp set coming out in January!  I punched a tag and added some twine to it.
How's that for a Happy New Baby gift?  It took me less than an hour to make a set of 10 notecards and the coordinating packaging!  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to do with matching colors, punches and stamp sets!

Thank you for following me and please come back tomorrow to see another quick and easy notecard set (it will be focused more toward Christmas!).
