Purse Note Card Set

I absolutely love how this thank you note card set turned out! This one is for today's 365 Cards, which is "don't forget your purse;" Alphabet Challenge, which is "Q is for quotes;" Color Throwdown, the colors are: soft sky, chocolate chip, kraft, and certainly celery; and Paper Cutz, which is "anything goes." The purse is from Forever Young and cut at 5 1/4." I stamped both the front and back of the paper with a flower stamp before assembling it; the inside is stamped with green ink and the outside with brown ink. I cut two rectangles of brown and blue paper and then rounded the corners. I had a vellum quote in my stash that I really liked, so I trimed it to fit. I embossed the blue paper with Stylized Flowers. The cards are all 3"x3" and cut out of the green paper and kraft paper. I layered the brown and blue papers again, running the top one through the Cuttlebug with the Stylized Flowers embossing folder. I stamped "thank you" on the bottom of the cards with green or brown ink. The envelopes are cut to fit the cards, I rounded the corners for a nicer look. The inner liner is also stamped with the same flower as the purse. I then cut a flower from Forever Young at 1 1/2" to put on the back of the envelopes. It was actually quite simple, just took a little time. I want to thank the Paper Boutique for the inspiration!

    anԁ without a doubt, yоu hаve hit
    the nail on the heаd. The problem is аn issue that too few
    men anԁ womеn arе spеаκing intelligently about.
    Νow і'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
