Hello crafty peeps! I’m back with a quick note card set using Card Sentiments and the new note card die.
It would be dishonest if I didn’t fully disclose that I love my A2 cards. That’s just my preferred size, and I usually cut them in portrait orientation. Occasionally , I will stray from that formula, but I know what I like, because I have a certain style of card making. I’m all about my layers and stuff. I think I mentioned this before, but my sister calls it, “pomp and circumstance.”
Initially, I started making the note cards way too elaborate. So, I had to step back and reevaluate and I decided that a simple embossed note card with a vellum envelope was the way to go. I diecut five note cards from Soft Stone cardstock and embossed the top flap with the Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. It’s one of my favorites. Somewhere in the middle of diecutting the cards and envelopes, I decided that I NEED to invest in a Vagabond. I use a lot of dies and that whole crank handle thing is, as they say, for the birds. Plus, my Cuttlebug is kind of sickly. I digress!
I stamped the sentiment from Card Sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink right above the score line on all of the cards. I wanted to package the set in my clear boxes, but they were too big and I didn’t like the presentation. Now, I’m thinking that it would be a great idea to go ahead and adhere the envelopes; then, tie them together, and package everything in a Kraft or glassine bag. Simple, yet classy – totally my style!
That’s all for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a blessed day!
