Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Anything But a Card

Today I'm participating in the Stampin Dreams Blog Hop.  The theme is "Anything But a Card".  I decided to share a great gift idea for a note card holder with some note cards.  This folder is made from a single sheet of Designer Series Paper without any adhesive!  I've added 3 note cards inside for a perfect gift.

I've coloured the stamped image using Stampin' Blends

Isn't this pretty?

3 Note Cards with envelopes fit perfectly


  1. Score 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper at 2", 5 3/4", 6 1/4" and 10"
  2. Turn 90 degrees and score at 2 1/2" and 8 1/4"


  1. Follow the instructions in my Youtube Video for folding the note card holder
  2. Cut Terracotta Tile cardstock using Ornate Die
  3. Stamp flower image in Basic White cardstock.  Cut out with Medium Stitched So Sweetly rectangle Die
  4. Colour flowers using Stampin' Blends - Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.
  5. Adhere to the ornate layer using Dimensionals.
  6. Cut 20" of ribbon and wrap around note card holder. Adhere to the front using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Adhere flower layer over the ribbon using Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere Gilded Gems to flower centres
  9. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper 1" x 5" and adhere to the left hand side of each note card using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Stamp sentiment in bottom right of note card using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  11. Insert note cards into note card holder.
  12. Tie ribbon on right hand side.
