Set of cards/notecards

This was a longtime desire of mine which finally got fulfilled. Whenever I would see somebody's notecards they would look so tempting, now finally I got to make some.


Ideally I wanted to make 3X3 notecards but I didn't have envelopes for them so made these instead which are 3.75 inch X 5.25 inch. They're actually big enough to be used for regular cards too, I think. The flower centers have rhinestones on them and the veins on the leaves and flowers are done using a Sakura white gel pen.

Do you get your rhinestones from the jewellery section of the crafts store? If not then you should try. Though they're not self-adhesive like the ones in the scrapbook section but they're VERY cheap! Around $3-4 for 100-150 pieces and if you can use the 40% off coupon in M's then the deal is even sweeter! Of course, there is the trouble of gluing these tiny pieces to paper but it's small compared to the price. Spaces have been left to add sentiment later.

  • Stamp: CTMH's Decorative dainties
  • CS: Wasau
  • Colorbox pigment inks, rhinestones.

I do the same...of course these rhinestones are way much cheaper in India, 10 bucks or so for over 100 pieces..which is less than 20cents I guess.
I like the idea of note cards..i might try them someday!
