Hello! Today’s blog is all about notecards. These were really quick and easy to put together, so easy that I had energy left to make 3 different type of envelopes that don’t require a special envelope board.
For these Notecards I used Mossy Meadow and Real Red card stock. You can get two notecards for one piece, there’s a little bit extra you can set aside for another project. For the Designer Series paper I used Heartwarming Hugs. This has a variety of different patterns. I used parts of 3 different sheets to get the look I was going for. I used liquid glue to adhere the pieces together.
For the sentiments I used the Many Messages bundle. This set stamps all the sentiments in one fell swoop and then the die cuts them all out. It’s a tad tricky to line them all up, but nothing a few well placed post it notes won’t fix. For this whole set I used the Momento Tuxedo Black ink and I used Stampin’ Dimentionals to put them on the card front. To top it off, I put a few little gold embellishments. If you want a whole new set of sentiments, you can use the other coordinating stamp set Many Happenings.
Above are the three types of envelope that I made and they look more complicated than they really are. Below are the templates to show you how to make them. The first one at the top is a mini version of what a manilla envelope usually looks like, it sits in a portrait orientation and the template shows where you score and what you cut off. Each flap you will see on all the templates is just trimmed a little bit for a more finished look. The second one in the middle is the least fancy, but also the easiest to do. You place your notecard in the middle of it with the point at the top, then you fold each flap in using your card to show you where to fold, then for the bottom flap, you just snip the point off. The last design is similar to the first except its in landscape orientation.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a look! There isn’t a live tutorial on this set due to my kiddo being sick, but I did show them on my live this week over on my facebook business page. Happy Crafting!
