A Gift of Notecards
At our card class last week, we did these two cards as examples of cards you could make from one set of designer paper for notecards. Here are some suggestions for creating notecards as gifts:
Make all cards the same orientation either portrait or landscape.
Keep them flat enough for one postage stamp. While you may know the postage rules or be willing to go the post office with a questionable mailing, others are not so leave the buttons and large brads off.
Choose papers and stamps that cross the seasons. This paper from Stampin' Up! would work anytime of the year. Choose papers from one collection for easy matching.
If all papers come from one collection, you can probably use the same color cardstock base.
I've given note cards as gift several times. Sometimes I monogram them. In the second card above, a monogram would fit nicely where the inchie is.
Thanks for visiting today!
