Card Gift Set Trio

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Well now that we are all through our holiday gift giving (and busy paying the bills that follow!) I thought I would share with you an easy, inexpensive hand made gift idea. If you are like me, you have plenty of friends and family members who have birthdays early in the year and are often stumped- or too broke, lol- to know what to get them.
So, I came up with this trio of notecards:

I had such fun making these! I actually started out making just one card. And once I realized how easy it would be to make variations, I kept going until I had three made. But the possibilities are endless! To finish them off, all you would have to do is add a few envies to which you could stamp a little flourish or scroll, or even line the flaps with some of the matching patterned paper.

Tie them up with some pretty ribbon, tulle or raffia and you're all set!
People love hand made gifts. This is an easy way to make a thoughtful gift for someone special.

You can read all my instructions and see more detailed photos on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog. And remember, use the discount code SARAH-10 and get 10% off your order when purchasing items to make these cards or for anything else in the store!

Thanks for stopping by today.
I'll be back soon with more to share, as I have been creating a lot of cards lately! :-) Plus, I am gathering items for a blog candy give-away coming soon!
And please leave a comment to let me know what you think. I always love hearing from you!!

Wishing you many blessings,

Wowzers! Sarah, those cards are all so, so beautifully awesome and inspiring! I love the bling frames and the paper is to die for! Not only am I addicted to ribbon, but I'm addicted to papers also. So beautiful!

What a great trio of notecards! I love how you used such pretty patterned paper- but each note card looks so different! You took each in a different direction and they are amazing!
Card one- what a sweet saying! I love the sparkly bitterflies!
Card two- pulling in the black colour is stunning!
Card three- so pretty- the ribbon is so soft!
