Special Notecards.

Hello Everyone,
I have some lovely note-cards to share today, I think they would make a gorgeous gift for a person who has everything. I have not decided who I will give them to as yet as I am enjoying them myself at the moment.
I have used the cutting file Mini Note card and Card set from The Cutting Cafe.
I also used The Matchbox Set  as I wanted a box for some of them.

Click on pics for close up views.

First up are the little note cards. 
Prima paper punched with a stitching style and placed on the front of the note card.

Stamped and painted with a bird and gold foil applied to the body
I painted up some paper.
and cut/embossed some frames for the envelopes.
I finished off this set with a Gold ribbon.

The second set.
Making the substrate- Painted card stock and foil from chocolates
Adding organza.
My artistic stitching.
Made up the note cards.

I made some butterflies using the same technique and attached it to the front of the cards.

Here they all are.
Now for the matchbox-
this is the casing.
Another butterfly attached to the front.
pull out the drawer and the note cards sit perfectly inside.

One file, two different looks.

You do not need a machine to cut these files, it can easily be done with scissors or craft knife.

All Dt projects are posted at The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month. 
We would love for you to visit and be sure to leave a comment for Regina.
 She selects one lucky person to receive 3 FREE files of their choice!

Have a great weekend.

Onion!! They're gorgeous. I would have never guessed in a million years that we used the same file. What you exquisitely designed is mixed media fabulous. Both of your styles are so unique and beautiful. The textures you procure make me want to maul them with awe and respect and admiration. You are so stinking talented!!!
Big hugs,

What fantastic notecard sets... I do love the glamour of the butterfly one, but there's something about the simplicity and beauty of the hummingbird ones that has really stolen my heart.
