Stamp a Notecard Stack in Presents and Pinecones - Oct 22 Project

 A cute package of cards and tags. 

I love the notecards... 20 cards and envelopes (cut folded for $6), so easy.   The pack has 3 cards and 3 tags  all in a cello bag with a matching top.

1.Cut the designer paper and then sort out your  tag vs the card pieces – the card pieces are the 3 longer designer pieces .  You'll use 1/3 of a sheet (or use the whole sheet for 9 cards, 9 tags)

2.Stamp 3 greetings on the 3 white 1 ¾ circles

3.Adhere the designer paper that is 4 ¼ x 2 to the solid card stock that is 4 ½ x 2 ¼ (some are cherry cobbler some are real red to match the Presents and Pinecones or the Candy Lane Paper); make 3 cards.  

You might want to add a bow, or rhinestone or a trinket to the greeting

Take the 6 tag pieces:  3 white pieces 2 x 4 and 3 designer pieces 3 1/2 x 2 (the white shows as it’s longer), use the scalloped tag punch and punch all 6 tags.  Tip, turn the punch over so you know you are all the way in to the punch.  If the paper is tight, trim it to 1 15/16”
5.Add the ribbon, I use a necktie loop but you could fold the ribbon in half in insert into the front and loop it around.  I love the matching ribbon... this set I used Emerald Envy, Cherry Cobbler and Mint Macaron to match the paper

6.You now have 3 cards, 3 envelopes, 3 tags.  You may want to stamp on your envelopes.  Put all of these into the cello bag and trim this bag to 4 x 8 (so remove the top 2” from the top).  
Fold over the top of the bag and hold the matching cardstock that is cut to 4 x 1 and staple the top shut.  Cover the staples with the last piece of designer paper cut 3 ½ x ¾ 

So easy and pretty... with designer paper on sale (buy 3 and get a free paper stack) .... it's tempting to make these up as birthday, thank you and other notecards.  

Happy Stamping
