Personalized Gifts



I love making personalized gifts so when I saw Lovely Letters, I immediately thought of using it with the Baroque Background stamp to create some elegant monogramed notecards with a matching notecard holder.

I got the template for this awesome note card holder from Julie Ebersole, her royal rubberness, when I went to a class she had a couple of years ago. There she is third from the left.




To make this note card holder, start with an 8 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock and score at 4 1/4" on the 8 1/2" side and 5 1/2" on the 8 1/4" side. Trim on the 4 1/4" score from the bottom up to the 5 1/2" score to create the two pockets to hold the envelopes and note cards. I used 4 of the notecards and envelopes from the small note card set that SU sells in a pack of 20. So I can get 5 gifts from one pack!

What a great gift! Thanks for sharing it - my mom's b-day is this weekend and I foresee her getting one of these! I also foresee me getting that background in my next SU order!
