Welcome to Day 1 of MFT Teasers for the July release! There's so much exciting stuff being released this month - I know you're going to love all of it!
Today I have a project using the new Banner Day Alphabet. As you'll see on some of the other design team blogs, there's a coordinating Die-Namics die to accompany this set - but mine is still being held captive by Canada Post! Anyway, I used my alphabet to create a small end of year gift for my son's teachers. These are what the outsides ended up looking like.
For the notecards themselves, I cut my cardstock into quarters - so each card is 4.25 x 5.5". I then printed off the notebook paper from the Stephanie Fizer School Collection digi papers. I set my printer to print 2 per page and then cut them down to 4"x5.25". I adhered them to the cardstock and used my alphabet to stamp the teacher's name at the top. I kept these pretty simple and plain as I felt the teachers would use them more this way. I did 10 for each teacher and also included envelopes.
My son takes French Immersion so his French teacher is Mlle. Markin. Mlle. is the short form for Mademoiselle, which is the equivalent of Miss. in French (there's your French lesson for today!). Can I tell you how super easy this alphabet was to work with and line up? Each letter comes with both an upper case and lower case version which is handy dandy! I can't wait until my dies get here so I can play with this properly!
