Below is a set of cards that was a convention make ‘n take – I have only just gotten around to putting mine together and realised that it would be a great project to show you since Things I Love is one of the sets that you can choose for free as one of your Sale-a-bration rewards…

It is a very girly set and I think especially fab for tweens and teens…you could make a package of these cards to give to a lucky girl for her to send to her friends or if you know a crafty girl, you could give her a gift package containing the cardstocks, ribbon and inks so that she could make her own…

The photograph below shows you a set of three notecards with envelopes that you can package and give in a cello bag with a cute bag topper – what girly girl wouldn’t love this little notecard gift pack?


The cards are sized 3″ x 3″ and the bases are made using Bermuda Bay cardstock – simply cut a 6″ x 3″ piece of Bermuda Bay t0 make each.  Each card has a layer of Chocolate chip cardstock and Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon as a very cute finishing touch.  The inks used are Chocolate Chip, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo and the Circle Punch  is the 1 3/8″ size – and you can find Things I Love on pg 54 of the main Catalog.

The circles and hearts are all adhered to the card bases using Dimensionals to give them a lift – and the hearts have Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them to give a real sparkle – just use a glue pen and sprinkle it on.  And check out those envelope flaps…isn’t that a really cute touch?


I simply traced around the flaps onto pieces of DSP from the Thorougly Modern pack which you can find on pg 163 of the Catalog – so simple but so effective – I love dressing up any sized envelopes in this way because you can use any paper scraps to do so and it makes a real impact.  Then you can make a bag topper and package them up in a small cello bag that you can find on pg 159 and voila – they are ready to give!
