Still catching up on posts...  Today I have a note card set that was one of the Make & Takes from the Providence Regional Event.  Have you ever tried out our Note Cards & Envelopes?  You get 20 of these adorable note cards and envelopes for $5.95.  You can make 5 of these wonderful gift sets with each one.

The cards were very quick and easy to stamp, although I do recommend using a Stamp-a-ma-Jig for the clock faces.  I forgot to stamp the tag for the envelope at the event and I don't have the Clockworks stamp set yet, so I made my own with the Mixed Medley Hostess stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  There is a FREE mini tutorial for the envelope that all the note cards fit in at the end of the post as well as the directions for some common size envelopes.  Enjoy!

  1. Begin with a 7-¼" Square piece of Vellum card stock.
  2. With the Diagonal Plate in place on the Simply Scored Scoring Board, score two opposite sides of the square @ 2-7/8″. 
  3. Score the other two opposite sides @ 3-7/8″.
  4. Using a square punch, snip out the small triangular area where the score lines cross or intersect. 
  5. Fold on the score lines and crease firmly with your bone folder.  Fasten three sides together with snail adhesive, leaving the third side open.  You can trim the bottom flap before adhering if desired.
This envelope fits four cards and four envelopes perfectly.  If you would like to make an envelope to fit a single card, here are the measurements for a few of the most commonly used sizes:

Standard A2 Card (5-½” x 4-¼”) 
cut paper 7-¾” square
score two opposite sides @ 3-1/8”
score two opposite sides @ 4-1/8”

3” Square Card (Love Note)

Open End Envelope (3½” x 6½”)
