Birthday Gift of Note Cards - Custom Made Hand Stamped Envelopes .........


using CTMH's "Unforgetable" level 2 paper pack, "Aspiration" & "Say It In Style" stamp sets, and Close To My Heart's Desert Sand polka dotted ribbon.....I absolutely LOVE this ribbon!!!





The 3 ink pad colors used are:

* Juniper

* Sorbet

* Cocoa


The cards are 5"x 5"

Size of envelopes are 5.5" x 5.5"

This was a gift I made for a very good friend's birthday. She's my house/dog sitter when I'm out of town.
I got the basic idea for this project from another Close To My Heart consultant.....can't remember her name but I plan on searching until I can find it so I can post her name here with a huge THANK YOU.
I am so appreciative of her inspiration for this special gift.

~~> I just found out who it was that made the notecard holder set that I modeled this one after. The CTMH consultant's name is Suzi Gies-Lay. Thanks Suzi!!! I made a few changes but your creation is what laid the groundwork for me. Hugs to YOU!!!

I used the "Aspiration" stamp set to do second generation stamping at the lower left side on the custom made envelope. The "Say It In Style" stamp set is a MUST for any card maker. Any greeting needed for a card is on that set....I've almost wore it out!!! LOL "Say It In Style" is the set I used to put the greeting/saying on the lower right corner of each card.

Your cards and purse are very pretty. Could Tresa Black be the one you are trying to think of? I thought I saw a design or tutorial on her website. I can't remember her website, but you can probably find her on the artwork BB.
