Have you ever gone to give a present and a card is just too much for the occasion. Or you just want to write a little note of thanks. I think notecards are the perfect size and wonderful for any occasion. In keeping with theme, the final part of Grandma’s handcrafted birthday gift is a set of notecards, in a custom made holder, with matching envelopes. And below, is a full set of instructions so you can make your own. Kelly x
To make this project, you need:
Ribbon: Marina Mist 1/4″ grosgrain (now retired)
- Project base: Cut Very Vanilla cardstock – 68 x 58. Along the 68 side, score at 34. Along the 58 side, score at 40. Crease down the middle line with a bone folder then fold up the bottom flap to create a pouch for your notecards and envelopes to sit in. Place a piece of sticky strip on each side of the pouch flap to hold it shut. Don’t put tape in the middle. The exact sizing of the pouch will hold everything in place. Cut a piece of ribbon to 16”. Adhere this to the middle of the cardstock, leaving a tail on each end you can use to tie the notecard holder shut.
- Front: Cut Midnight Muse cardstock – 30 x 312, Soft Sky cardstock – 212 x 38 & Very Vanilla cardstock – 28 x 34. Stamp & sponge the Very Vanilla cardstock with stamps from the Wetlands set. Stick together the three layers of cardstock and adhere to the right panel of the project base – over the ribbon.
- Notecards: Cut 4 pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock – 28 x 38. Sponge Soft Sky ink across the bottom of the notecard and stamp the wading birds in Crumb Cake ink.
- Envelopes: Using the Envelope Punch Board, make 4 envelopes (I used Midnight Muse, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand & Soft Suede cardstock). Follow the directions for 2 ½ x 3 ½ notecards – paper size 5 ½, score line 2 3/8.
