Today I want to share a note card holder with two of the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes.
We'll be using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle that consists of the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and the Strawberry Builder Punch from Stampin' Up! We'll also use the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper that you can get for free as a Sale-a-Bration choice when spending $100. Not only would you get the pack of paper, but an additional stamp set called Berry Blessings.
I made this set to share with the North Carolina SU Demo Facebook group and decided I must share it with you as well. I first saw this note card holder several years ago when shared by Patty Bennett. The original, I believe, was shared by Di Barnes. You can find a download on Di's website. Search for No-cut Patterned Paper Gift Folder. The date is October 21, 2015. Her site is listed as www.dianebarnes.blogspot.com. Scoring for the folder is at 2, 6, 10 across the top, turn and score at 2 1/2 and 8 1/4. It takes a 12 x 12 piece of paper. If your piece is directional, start the scoring right side up. It will be correct on the outside and upside down on the inside. That won't matter so much.
I do have a video that I'll add for this project. It does mention NC, but hopefully that's OK. I'm going to let you watch the video for the folds of the note card holder or go download the directions.
Here are pictures of the two note cards.
To decorate the holder, use Basic White card stock and the 2nd largest rectangle from Stitched So Sweetly dies. Both note cards also use the same rectangle, so cut three while you are at it. Stamp the saying in the bottom right corner. Stamp three of the leaves using Memento ink scattered around between where the strawberries will be. Color with the Granny Apple Green Combo blends and the Light Daffodil Delight blend.
Punch strawberries from the Berry Delightful paper. In all total with decorating the note cards, you'll need 3 strawberries from the Poppy Parade check and two strawberries from the Poppy Parade with seeds. I cut a strip about 1 1/2 inches wide and ran it through to punch. It still wastes a little of the paper. Sponge around the strawberries with Poppy Parade. Punch the strawberry toppers from the patterned paper that looks like leaves. For this I paid no attention to the orientation of the paper. The toppers are small and just need to look a little leafy. In my original I did not sponge the toppers. I did with the second one. I think the sponging helps. I used Garden Green ink.
Attach the white rectangle to a piece of DSP that is 3 x 4 a little askew. Attach to the center of the note card holder on dimensionals with the white rectangle straight.
The note cards are made basically the same so I'll talk about them together. Use the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes. Cut 1 inch from the front of each card. I featured different patterned paper for each card. The first one uses the paper with the seeds for the front measuring 2 1/2 x 5 and the flip side with the strawberries for the inside measuring 1 1/8 x 5. The same measurements are used for the second card, but using the leafy paper for the larger and the checked paper for the smaller.
Pull out the Stitched So Sweetly rectangle from above and stamp near the bottom in Memento ink. Stamp the saying in the upper left in Poppy Parade. Color the leaves as above and then color the center of the flower in Dark Daffodil Delight blend and shade a little using the Light Smoky Slate blend. Add the strawberry with dimensionals.
When adding the rectangle to the card, remember that part of it extends over the card front. No glue goes there!
Finish by adding designer paper to the flap of each envelope.
Need a little something to send to a friend? Here you go. Let me also say that you can get 4 note cards in the holder.
Thanks so much for joining me today. If you need supplies, I wish you would consider me as your demonstrator. That is, if you don't already have one.

Now I would like to introduce a new class that you can get free with a $50 purchase using the Host Code U9YDQAQK. Of course, you would not use the code should your order be over $150.
