Muchas Gracias and Xiè Xiè

Hi friends,
I'm sharing a little note set I created for the teachers in my department as a "Welcome Back to School" gift. From time to time, we usually get little gifts from our students & I know I like to give them a thank you card. I thought I would create a set of 4 note cards so teachers can have them on hand.

Here's the note card holder:
Since we're Spanish teachers, I thought the Papel Picado banners from Avery Elle would be a great set to use.
Here are the cards in each color way:

Since I was making multiples, I needed to keep them simple.

Here are the innies:
There are two cards and envelopes on each side.

And here are all the note card holders:
I stamped the party banners in the same colors. I think it made it look very fun & festive! *Ü*

We also have one Chinese teacher, so I created a little something more fitting for her:
Here's the note card holder:
The background is embossed with the CB Roman Bath embossing folder. I die-cut the Koi fish and the letters to spell xiè xiè.

Here's the card:
Here's the innies & the cards:

Those are the Chinese symbols for "Thank You" from a Stampendous stamp. I had to do some stamp surgery because my friend told me the way it was mounted on the stamp (vertical) wasn't really correct. So I cut it apart & remounted it horizontally. I stamped it with Versamark ink & heat embossed them in gold. The inside says "Thank You" in English, but I forgot to take a pic of that :(

This is a super easy peasy card holder to make that I've been using for years. In the original instructions, you are to use eyelets, but I just use liquid adhesive with no problems. You can find the tute---> HERE.

I hope they like them *Ü*
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until next time!
