Horse Note Cards

Good morning! I know there has been quite a bit of buzz lately about the MISTI tool - and I have to say I have found many reasons to love mine! I was especially happy the other evening when I was able to put together a set of 10 of these cards in just a little over an hour! I had a friend request a set of cards for a 4-H fundraiser for her kids, something with horses preferably. So...I pulled out this sweet Phyllis Harris set from Unity called Easier with YOU by my side and set to work!

I also used the sketch from the Unity {be inspired} Challenge - a little loosely, since I mostly used the center portion:

And also linking up with this weeks Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Special Lady/Girly:

I assembly line colored them - very simply! - with Copic markers, rounded a couple corners, and applied distress ink to soften the edges.

Next, I added a bit of washi tape to the top corner, a tiny Tim Holtz paperclip, and a tiny loop of jute twine - reminded me of a lasso!

Finally, I mounted them with foam adhesive on kraft card bases. I used clear boxes from Papertrey Ink to package them up. Because of the foam adhesive, I was only able to fit 5 cards in a box with matching envelopes, so I used two boxes. Don't they look pretty all packaged up?

Thanks for dropping by! I have another post that will be going up later today - see you soon for that one! :)
