Fabulously Long Notecards

My darling friend Kristin asked me to make some of my Fabulously Long Notecards for her to give to her children's preschool teachers. I pulled from my insane paper stash SU!, Daisy D's and Crate Paper for inspiration. I double matted the white cardstock and used color accents from each of the respective sheets of DP. I used my Cricut to cut the scallop circles as well as the monograms. As you can see I'm experimenting with my new photo studio in a box. I've got to figure out how to increase the lighting and make the images brighter. But it's so nice to have a nice clean, plain background!!

Here are the details on the long notecards:
