Mama and I went to Barnes and Noble in Mandeville, LA to meet Saints Head Coach Sean Payton on July 26. I wanted to make something special to give him, so I made a set of Saints-themed notecards monogrammed with his and his wife's intials. I also made a matching box to put the cards in.
For the cards, I embossed the white background with the Cuttlebug Fleur de Lis folder. I found this perfect fleur de lis patterned paper at Hobby Lobby. I added a black ribbon and some gold trim with the EK Success Arbor border punch. The monograms were stamped with my Just Rite stamper, and I cut them out with Circle Nestabilities. I layered them on a black scalloped circle that was cut out with Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I adhered them directly to the card rather than using foam tape. I wanted the cards to be easy for them to mail.
It was sooo exciting getting to see him, get his book autographed, and talk to him for just a moment!!
