Swifty Nifty Gifty

Hey all~ I figured since I am a card maker, it seemed only right to make a set of cards for a gift. This set is SUPER simple. I used up some scrap paper so all the designs are the same, but I made these in about an hour (a while back) and that is what I call a swifty-nifty-gifty. (Is this getting obnoxious yet?)
 Here are 3 of the 6 I made:

As you can see, I did some background stamping and paired it with some K&Co. papers. That little deer has some glitter on her behind-er. So cute! I actually got a pack of cards and envies (about 300 or so?) from Wal-Mart for about 5$. Super cheap. So cheap I feel a lot of guilt about it. But this is a great way to get all the supplies you need to make a quick set of cards.
I scored up a belly-band and added some ribbon to keep them all together. You really could give them just like this, but I wanted to try this pocket. Its folded with one 12x12 patterned paper:
I added a ribbon handle too. I ran out of time last night so I didn't doll up the outside. It desperately needs it! This is a fun fold you can learn from SCS. Easy and quick. 
And that is my project for today! All of these are thank you cards. I am pretty sure everyone can use some of those!

Thanks for hanging out with me and all my gifties this week. I hope to have a few more, but I feel some deadlines crunching, so I am not sure how many I will be able to get done by Sunday. But check back tomorrow. There will for sure be a card.... there always is! ; )
loves to you~
