RBT....Note Card Set

This 3x5 note card set is a really simple set to make and it would make a lovely gift for someone special. It holds 6 note cards and envelopes.

The box was created from 2 pieces of 8.5" x 7.75" Poppy Parade, see the template below for scoring and cutting guidelines, if you click on the template it will enlarge so the dimensions are easier to read.

I used the wide oval punch to create the handles, the DSP for the front of the box is from the In-Color DSP stack and the Poppy Parade Twill Ribbon

One of these is the front and one is the back just glue them together with one inside the other to create the box/holder.

I took this picture to show how I colored the Pearls to match the colors of the Cards.

The cards were created  using Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, and Peach Parfait.The fronts were Whisper White that had been run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. To get the  blank space in the center of the mat I used the technique as seen on this post over at Patty Bennett's Blog:

I took a 3x5 piece of the cardboard that is found in our DSP packs and found the center of it.I then punched out a wide oval from the center. I did this 3 times on 3 different pieces of cardboard and then layered them one on top of the other. Next I place it on the back of the Square Lattice embossing folder and then placed my Whisper White cardstock inside the folder centered over the cardboard shim with the wide oval cut out and rolled it through my Bigshot. This then embosses only where there is pressure and not where there is no pressure.
 The inside of the notes were decorated with the inside oval from the Scalloped Oval Frame cut from copy paper and stamped with the same image as the front of the card.

Envelopes were stamped with the images as well so every thing co-ordinates.


More pearl acents.


I hope this isn't too difficult to understand,if you need any further assistance please let me know and I will gladly help.

  1. Thanks Sharri for the great tutorial on how you made this set. It has given me ideas for a project I am currently doing. Just a quick question - how did you colour the pearls?
