Happy Birthday Ms. B

For Ms. B's Birthday (my son's teacher) we give her See's Candy every year, but this year I wanted to make her a set of note cards. As a teacher I know she writes her share of notes, and thank you cards, so i thought it would be a good idea.

For the Birthday Card  I used:

Recollections card stock: in teal  for the card and in tan for the mat under the cake.
Birthday card paper with school sayings I've had for years and I don't recall what the name is but it was open stock from Michael's.
I used Jolee's Birthday sticker set, it's an old one, and it came from my stockpile.
I used Sizzix's Notebook embossing folder by Tim Holtz, for the tan mat under the birthday cake.
The envelope was made using paper from Recollections All Seasons paper pad. This pad is so fantastic, i have used it more than any other pad.

For Ms. B's gift, besides the box of See's candy I made her this note card set. It came out better than i imagined. She is not a science teacher, she actually is a Special Education teacher, but I like Planets, and since she teaches many subjects I thought it fit.

Note card set: 
I used Recollections card stock in tan for the cards, light orange for the planets circles and in dark green for the chalkboard and tag.
For the mats on the  note cards I used Michael's open stock paper, it's school lined paper, I have had this one for a while also, but I cut it into mats and did not keep the strip with the paper's name. You can use any lined paper for the same look. 
Recollections Mosaic Memories paper pad.

For the chalkboard I used :
On the chalkboard frame I used Recollections Mosaic Memories paper pad (another of my favs).
For the inside of the chalkboard I used dark green Recollections card stock.
For the chalk on the chalkboard, I just turned over the cut out from the chalkboard frame as the paper is not double sided and the back is white, it saved me a step.
For Saturn:
I used Recollections light orange card stock for the planet's circle.
For Saturn's ring I used Recollections Mosaic Memories paper pad. 
For the envelopes;
I used every single sheet of the ledger paper in the Recollections Mosaic Memories paper pad.  I love them. I wished they gave me more of each of the 4 designs. I will be buying this paper pad again.

I tied up the note card set with red and white baker's twine.

This was simple and took very little time, once i came up with the design. Note cards are a great gift for all those who teach, help, or care for your children. This year I will be making them for all the aides and staff that work with my children.
