Happy Weekend!  I'm finally back to my blog after a bit of a vacation.  
Today I bring you these sweet 3x3 note cards and matching envelopes.  Last year I offered these for sale at my craft fairs and they sold pretty well so I decided to make a big batch.  I find mass producing is much easier than a little at a time.  I made over 62 packs of cards with coordinating envelopes.   I also used my grandmothers crochet thread to band them up and tie a cute bow.  The note cards and envelopes make great gifts anytime of the year or just a random "leave something on your co-workers desk" for a nice surprise.

The paper dimensions are quite simple.  I used a piece of Very Vanilla cut 3 x 6 and scored at 3.  Calypso Coral cardstock was cut 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper cut 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  

The envelope was created with the Envelope Punch Board using the reverse side of the Tea Room Designer Series paper.  The paper is cut 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.  If you do not have the Envelope Punch Board, put it on  your wish list.  There are so many projects you can make with it; not just envelopes.

The ink is Calypso Coral and the sentiment is from Beautiful You stamp set.
I used the Extra Large Oval Punch along with the 1 3/4 x 7/8 oval punch.  Even though these punches are retired, I will always use them for mass producing projects.  Another option for the focal point could be circle punches, layering framelits like the ovals, squares or circles.  We have plenty of options.  The coordinating cardstock used is Calypso coral.

Here is my video to help you create these sweet note cards.

I hope I inspired you to create today.  If you are a beginner papercrafter, this is the perfect project to begin with.  Have a great day, and stamp today!  -Karen
