Yummy Note Card Set

Hi!!  This is Lori from ScrappinMyStressAway and I am super excited to share this Yummy note card set today here and at CricutDiva!!

I made a set of 3x3 cards with truffles on them from the Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge.

I printed out the light pink distressed-look pattern on white cardstock to use as background paper for my cards.  I cut them to 2 7/8" squares and adhered them to my note card (3x6 folded in half).

I printed and cut out the three truffles and mini cake at 2" each.  I inked the edges in Vintage Photo ink, and added a little stickles to each piece and let dry.

Before I adhered the patterned paper to the card, I wrapped a piece of 3Girl Jam 1/3 the way up the paper.  I chose the blue to bring out the bit of blue in each card.

I got the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch - super cool new toy!!!  I wanted to make envelopes for my little note cards.

Making the envelopes were fun, once I watched a YubeVideo on how!!

I found this Enveolope Gum at Archivers to seal the envelopes.  I just painted the glue on and let it dry.  It just needs a little water to seal.

I made a little folder to keep the card set in - this makes a great gift idea!!

I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock and cut it to 8 1/2" x 6".  Placing the paper horizontally on my Score Board, I scored 2" up from the bottom to create the pocket.

I turned the paper to score the fold lines.  I scored at 4 1/8" and 4 3/8".

I used my ATG gun to adhere the center of the bottom flap (pocket) to the spine of the folder.

I punched a hole on each side of the pocket.  I ran a piece of 3Girl Jam ribbon across the inside of the folder and used a glue dot in the spine to hold the ribbon down. 

When you close the folder, simply tie a pretty bow.

What a Yummy Gift card set!  These are great for teachers, friends or even secret pals.  I included this set in an Easter Swap gift with another paper crafter!

Thanks Sheila for having me over today!!
