Horses, Horses and More Horses

Yesterday I showed you the birthday card I made for my daughter's riding instructor.  Today I want to show you the card set I also made for her.  With show season upon us, I thought she may find these useful.

 I used a tutorial I found on SCS to make the drawer box.  Using second generation stamping, I stamped a couple of the horse images that I would include in the set onto the top.  The stamp set is from Inkadinkado and is one of my daughter's favorites.

I made 6 cards - two of each design using three different images.  I sponged the outside of the nestabilites die cut with some Tea Dye ink and then stamped the horse images in PTI Chocolate.  I added CTMH opaques from the Mocha collection to each card.

I also added a second generation stamp of the running horses to the flap of each of the envelopes to complete the set.  Unfortunately, I neglected to get a picture of that for you but I am sure you get the idea.  I was really pleased with the way the set came out.

This week I am super busy getting my daughter ready for her first horse show of the season.  We discovered that she grew an awful lot since last year and I am running around trying to replace some of the necessary items that are now too small.  She's so excited to be showing with her own pony this year.

Hope you have an awesome day!

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - Horses from Inkadinkado, PTI Out on a Limb Sentiments and Inside & Out Thank You
Ink - PTI Chocolate and Tea Dye
Cardstock - PTI Chocolate and Vintage Cream
