Notecards for the Butterfly Notecard Boxes

A couple of days ago I shared two boxes that I made to hold some of the Stampin' Up! Notecards. Today I am sharing some of the decorated notecards that are in the boxes.

I've stuck to the theme of using just one colour to stamp the butterfly wings - the boxes made the other day were in Lost Lagoon so of course I have continued with this colour scheme.


The dots were stamped by inking once and
then stamping a number of times on
the Very Vanilla card stock

The notecards themselves are not full size C6 cards (they measure 12.7 cm x 8.9 cm with the envelopes measuring 13.0 cm x 9.2 cm) so it did not take too much to decorate them. In fact I had to restrain myself otherwise they would have looked too busy. Those of you who know me, know that I don't do busy. The notecards themselves are an absolute bargain because you get 20 cards along with 20 envelopes for just £5.50. They are available in both Crumb Cake (used on this project) and Whisper White.

I made two cards with a circle theme, and another two with a rectangle theme. None of them were  complicated to make. Having said that, if you want to keep things really simple I think four of any of the same card in a box, would be a lovely gift to give.

Circle dies and punches were used to make
this effect along with the Elegant Dots
Embossing Folder

All of the cards were made using the Watercolor Wings stamp set and I used the same greeting from the set on each card. The greeting was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

A little bit of Gold Thread to add some interest

Of course, I didn't forget to decorate the envelopes too, and I tried to do each one a little differently. They do look better in real life (honest).


I hope you give the box and notecards a go and would love to see what you make. I would also love to hear what you think of my projects . Love them,  hate them, too complicated or what?

If you want to know what I used for these notecards, here are the details:
