6pm EST: Correspondence Badge- Camp Card Set Challenge

Hey, Papertrey Ink fans! I'm back with a little card set to share with you for Stamp-a-Faire. I made some mini cards and housed them in a Nugget Tin. These would surely make a fun gift!

I kept the mini cards very simple, so mass producing would be quick and easy. There are 10 mini cards in here, all different sentiments from the Half & Half stamp set. You need the Half & Half dies also.
I'll show you how!

Step 1: Cut 10 pieces from white cardstock with the pointed die from the Half & Half Die Collection. You can use one of the other Half & Half dies also if you wish!
Step 2: Score them and fold in half.
Step 3: Stamp with the Half & Half stamp set with Sweet Blush ink (the long tag patterns).
Step 4: Add a sentiment with Pure Poppy ink using the Half & Half stamps. I made 2 cards with each sentiment, since there were 5 sentiments in the stamp set.
Step 5: Die cut 10 Aqua Mist felt keys with the Lock & Key Die Collection. Tie around each mini card with Rustic Just Button Twine. If you don't have the key, you could add a button or a little flower instead.
Step 6: Pack them up in the nugget tin with some white envelopes. I used these 4 1/4" x 2 1/2" envelopes.
Step 7: To decorate the top of the nugget tin, I wrapped some Aqua Mist Satin ribbon around and tied it in a bow. Then to make the bow extra fluffy, I tied another bow and used a glue dot to add it over the top of the other bow! I made a little rose with a strip of Pure Poppy felt. I added a strip of red patterned paper from the Pure Poppy Pattern Pack and a strip of Pure Poppy felt.

I really like how everything just peeks through the top of the tin! 

Well, I can't wait to see your version of this little card set. Please link me up to your project, I'd love to see your take on it!
