Quick and Simple Notecards

A few weeks ago, my Pastors wife asked me to make some note cards for a missionary wife that was going to visit the church. She showed me some home made cards that she recieved once when visiting a church. She loved the idea of home made note cards to send out. She only had one left though, so I decided to make her some.

First I made the folder using Paper Temptress White Gold card stock. You can see the beautiful shimmer of this paper in the photos of the note cards since it is used on every card. I used a template called All Boxed Up which was designed by Laruen Meader and is available at Papertrey Ink.

I have used this template several times with not trouble at all, but for some reason it printed all weird this time. The pockets were way to big and the folder is super tall. After altering the pockets and folder for everything to fit together, I embosses each pocket and the outside of the folder in silver.

I did adhere the pockets backward on purpose. I like the way it looks this way better, especially since I can stamp a nice image onto them this way.

I made 2 of each of these note cards for the folder.

This butterfly stamp is from Kitchen Sink and I love it. I cut it out and adhered it with dimensionals.

I made the whole set in no time yesterday afternoon, including working to fix the folder template. They go so fast expecially since there is no decorating of the insides.

I hope you all have a super weekend!
