Sweet Dreamers challenge #3 (Grids)

I made this one for the third challenge for the blog group I'm in. Check out all the other Sweet Dreamer's blogs (linked on my side bar). I had never used this Papertreyink set (Guidelines) or specialty paper. It comes with a pre-printed grid that fits the stamps. I went ahead and stamped up the whole sheet and then cut it to size. From a whole sheet I made a set of 8 note cards. I'm sending these off to a friend, hope he will like them!
Here you can see how I packaged up the whole set and envelopes. These plastic boxes are available from Papertreyink also. They really make a set of cards look professional when you are gifting them. I used these boxes last Christmas to make teacher gifts. Keeps the cards nice, too (no bent edges).

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
