Garden of Roses Notecards

31 Oct

    Hello everyone!

    Although quite a bit of time has passed by since my last post, I have not forgotten my lil’ blog… However, with all events that life threw my way, it was inevitable that I would have to put aside a few of my activities, so I can heal and recover after my surgery…

    I have created this little notecards box a while back, but never got around to post it here or in my shop – so I thought that today is the day! LOL… As I have never done a set of notecards before – especially not a boxed set – I was a bit reluctant to post it, but here it is… And, so many months after its creation, I still like the way it turned out 🙂

    I had this absolutely lovely Designer Papers from K&Company, named “Life’s Journey” and, as hard as it was to part with a few of its pages, I did! The cards are 3.75in by 3.75in, layered with dark artichoke green and light moss textured cardstock, while the insert is natural white cardstock, that feels a lot like handmade paper… To keep the flap of the box closed, I made a belly band using the other side of the notecard paper, and top it off with a handstamped & punched sentiment… The inside of the notecards is white, which allows the sender to use them for any occassion.

    I love the shabby chic, vintage-look of that paper pad- don’t you…?

      Thank you much, Laurie!
      The cards really are not that elaborate and they were fun to see how they turned out! The box took a few tries, though… lol

      Thank you much, Katy! I am doing OK, as well as it can be expected 30 days after surgery… Looking forward to get back to work, actually… lol
