Note Cards for a Friend

I have been working on these note cards for the past few days, I was looking at the Silhouette America Blog and found a very easy to follow tutorial on how to make your custom shaped cards which reminds me of what I did two weeks ago with my scalloped circle card for Mojo Monday (I didn't submit that one), but I had a problem aligning the two shapes to make sure when my card folded it was an even fold. Well, after watching and following the instructions on the blog, I think I have learned how to make sure my custom shapes align nicely.

For this set, I have used six different graphic sets from LD. Lately, I have been playing a lot with the print and cut function on my cameo, it is so easy and my cards come out looking cute. It is one of my favorite things to do with my machine.

Two note cards are missing, but I think I know who took them from my stash lol. My six year old was watching work on these and I am sure she took the missing ones. These cards are going to go to a friend who is going thru a hardship right now, fighting a war against breast cancer, she gave me the idea of making lunch notes for my daughter's lunch box, but I think I will send her these ones so she can write messages to her daughter when she is feeling a little under the weather.

The sets I used are:

And as usual, these graphics were printed on my favorite paper, Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Papper - Matte. It is very expensive but you can find it on sale at your local office supply store. I usually buy mine at Staples and they will take coupons when you purchase this paper. Believe me that this paper it's worth every penny you pay for it.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh, these are lovely! I have been thinking of making something similar with the graphics I bought. Like I said in my post, I am finally overcoming my fear of PnC. LOL

  2. I am getting too lazy at stamping and doing a lot more of pnc with my cameo lol. It is so easy to just print what you need in the colors you want instead of looking for the right stamps and the right inks.

    Give it a shot Becki, it is easy!
