I think the Note Cards & Envelopes are the best deal ever! I've said it before. They come in Whisper White and Vanilla. You get 20 cards and envelopes for $6.50. They are a little smaller that the regular A2 cards. They measure 3 1/2 x 5. I use these are lot when making a lot of a card. I use them for shut-ins at church, thank yous, and RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) cards for the Luv 2 Stamp group. Here is my card for this month.
This card was very simple. Use the Falling for Leaves stamp set to make your background. You are making your own designer series paper! I started with the largest leaf and stamped them in stamped off Crumb Cake. Next I added the Mint Macaron leaves. This is a two-stamp leaf. You'll add the lines in the leaves. It's easy to match since this set is photopolymer. The Poppy Parade leaves are next, and then the Pumpkin Pie leaves with the lines added. It really does not matter the order that you use, but I do suggest you start with the largest stamp first, and then work down.
The saying used is from the stamp set Eastern Beauty found on page 138 of the annual catalog. It's such a great sentiment. Stamp in Poppy Parade on Very Vanilla card stock. Punch this out with the 1 1/2 inch circle punch. Use the Layering Circles for the Poppy Parade scalloped circle. Yes, you can use the Layering Circles for both. It's easier for me to use a punch if I am making multiples of a card.
Cut a length of the Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon found on page 19 of the Holiday catalog. Mine was about 5 inches long. Tie, in a knot, some of the Linen Thread. It's about 1 1/2" back and about 3" long. Add the poppy ribbon to the card. I just used my snail right on the ribbon. Add a double Linen Thread bow with a glue dot. Add the saying with dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, add some leaves. Remember to stamp off the large Crumb Cake leaf.
Now I need to address some envelopes and get these out in the mail!
It's fun to make your own background! Play with it. I'm sure you'll like your results!
