Care Package Cards in a Jiffy!

i just wanted set

I needed a bunch of quick little cards to put in with care packages to send to college kids this week before their final exams start.   I dug through my Designer Paper Packs and found a bunch of “school” designs.   Add some PPP dies and inspiring quotes and viola!   I had a pile of cards in no time!   On the cards above I used our Designer Paper and Stickers, PPP Film Strip Die, PPP Mini Storybook Die, We Create Our Tomorrows, I Just Wanted to Say ($2 Sale!), and Start By Doing.
