It's Here!

Finally, it's here, the final reveal of the full project. Someone of you might think what is the big deal, but for me it was a big accomplishment. And I know there are plenty of others that could have come up with it in hours, not days. I originally saw the idea on SCS, but a tutorial wasn't available, so I recreated it on my own. Anyways, all the Circle Circus cards were created to be part of this:


So what exactly is an Emergency Card Kit? It contains the six cards that you have been looking at all week. If you noticed, none of the cards at sentiments attached to it and that's because the person giving the card chooses what sentiment to put on it. So the inside looks like this, with 12 different sentiments for them to choose. They just peel of the inside of the folder and they will have exposed dimensionals on the back to adhere the card. See the picture below.


So the whole set put together, looks like this.


So what do you think? Well, it's time for the blog candy. One lucky reader will get the above kit to use for themselves or give to someone else as a gift. Would anyone be interested in purchasing a tutorial for this? Leave me a comment, letting me know what you think and if you would be interested in purchasing a tutorial for a chance to win this kit! The blog candy will be open for as long as this post is the first post (approximately through Monday morning). Don't forget to be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you're the winner. If you don't, you may lose your eligibility for the candy.

Perfect idea! Especially for an older person who loves to give cards. Simple and easy to use. Or even for the little ones. They could feel like they have helped make the card.
Great idea for a craft fair! Oh yes to buying a tutorial for this. Thanks for doing all the hard work for us! You are a creative master!

Tina,
Great job. I've seen something similar, can't remember where. But I would love a tutorial...especially for the folder. I don't have this set but I think you could easily subsitute something else. I love the color combo you used.

Wow - What a GREAT gift idea! Rather than giving the card sets like normal - this would really be a show stopper for my female friends and family who love to receive my cards. With this set, they would feel as though they had a hand in making the card they gave! And the colors are gender neutral - WTG! Thanks so much for sharing! A tutorial would be helpful too!

OMG, I LOVE this idea! My sister is a kindergarten teacher and is always looking for ideas to give her mom-helpers. I'm a pediatric nurse who enjoys giving my co-workers cards to show how much I appreciate them. This is the perfect combination of cards and options to give someone as a 'thank you'.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Great idea. I'm not a template or tutorial type person. I tend to "recreate the wheel" myself each time. It is a lovely set however and having one in my hands certainly would make recreation easier. :)
