For Mom

I made this set of notecards for my mother for her birthday. I haven't given them to her yet, so I hope she doesn't read this post today! LOL My mother LOVES pretty notecards. She especially loves pastel colors. I should have made this in pinks or peaches (her favorite), but I had this color combo in my head when I looked at my VersaMagic Dew Drops. I'm sure she'll like this as well, but I still might make her another set. After all, you ALWAYS need notecards, right? Anyway, I made this set for her last week and thought (since it's made with Papertrey Ink stamps) that I'd submit it for the Guest Star Stamper contest at Papertrey Ink. . .and I got an Honorable Mention! How cool is that? What a WONDERFUL surprise! So, hopefully my mom will give them an Honorable Mention too! :) Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Beautiful Blooms, Ambassador Monogram set (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Whisper White (SU), chocolate, tan (DCWV); Ink- Wheat, Sahara Sand, Sage (VersaMagic), Burnt Umber (Palette); Accessories- cream organdy ribbon, Martha Stewart Brownstone glitter, Nestabilities small square, ticket corner punch.

Congrats on the "Honorable Mention" The note Cards are just awesome. Did you also make your mom the envelopes for the note cards?

Do you have just a quick tutorial on making note cards. Silly question I know, but I haven't made them before and am not sure. Does everyone of your note cards have the lovely ribbon around it? Did you make a note card holder? If so, How?

Well, again a wonderful project and I know your mom has to be so proud of all the beautiful items you make and especially the ones she receives.....Hugs,
Debi
