Teacher Gift- Apple Cards

Hello Friends! I am back with another teacher gift. This one was for my friend, Lisanne. She is a new teacher at our school. She just graduated her first class of little Kindergarten kids. I thought next year she might need some cutesy cards.P1060246
Same basic idea as the previous two days. Box of cards with a vellum lid. This time the lid goes over the outside of the box (because measuring is not my strongest skill), other than that its just like the others. The sides are a little deeper because this is an 8 card set.
The "from the desk of...." is printed on using the computer. I used microsoft word to do this. I learned how from a great tutorial on Jennifer McGuire's blog. All other stamps are from Papertrey ink. I was using the anniversary set and Fruit Fusion Apples.
The red box and the scalloped white box are nestabilities. The red gingham ribbon is from Making Memories (Big Lots score from last summer). The polkadot frame on the envie is from fillable frames.
I hope you like them. Thanks, as always, for stopping by my blog!

Michele, this is wonderful! I'm sure Lisanne is going to love it. :) Do you happen to have a link to Jennifer's tutorial on typing on cards? I can't always seem to get it to look right. You can PM me the information if you have time. :) Thanks again!

These are fabulous, I love the kraft and red together. I also love the vellum top for the box. I'm going to have to try that.
