Simple notecards are something we can all use even in this technological age. There is always that check that needs to be popped into the mail, the thank you that would be more appropriate as snail mail than as an email, or the need to tuck a card in with a gift or that container of hot soup for a sick friend. I try to keep a variety of cards around the house, in various sizes, for just this purpose. I also keep small sets of cards on hand to give as a gift - especially to those friends and family members who do not craft themselves. Often these gift sets include thank you cards (my favorite to give to teachers), blank inside notecards (which can be used by anyone for any occasion), or a variety pack of greeting cards.
Here is my most recent set:
Some of you may remember that when I did my Pottery Barn inspired bee card (see here), I referenced a simple notecard I saw online ... just a single gold embossed bee in the center of a white notecard. That simple bee has been buzzing around in my mind ever since waiting to come out to play. This set of embossed notecards and envelopes finally came to life last week.
The cards took almost no time at all to make, especially since I used the Note Cards sold by Stampin' Up! which include 20 pre-cut and scored cards as well as envelopes. I created 20 note cards (5 sets of 4?) in about 5 minutes.
This set came to life so easily, I just might have to make similar sets with other images.
If you would like to make this set for an apiarist in your life (ok, so maybe we don't all know a beekeeper personally - but someone you know probably likes bees!), the Nature Walk stamp set is only available through April 31st.
