Homemade Notecard and Envelope

Stickers
My friend Cathy sent me these beautiful stickers (I love Sunbonnet Sue!) and they were the inspiration for this week's homemade card. You can use any kind of stickers or embellishments, of course.

Card

Cut a 4" wide strip from a 12x12" piece of scrapbook paper.

Card
Turn strip over and fold down a 2 1/2" flap at the top.

Card
Fold the bottom flap up to meet the top crease line.

Card
Basic card shape.

Card
Using decorative scissors, cut top flap as shown.

Card
Punch a hole at the bottom.

Ribbon
Add stickers and a ribbon bow.

Envelope
You can make a matching envelope from the leftover scrapbook paper.

Envelope
Take a 5 3/4 x 4 1/2" envelope apart and trace onto scrapbook paper.

Envelope
Cut out and glue sides and bottom.

Envelope
Add a decorative label to the front.

Card
Send to a friend! Let me know if you make one too!

I was just looking over this card again, and I love all the card ideas you have posted here and in Seasonal Delights, but what about for the men in our lives? I would rather make all my cards than purchase them, but I often have trouble coming up with creative ideas of a masculine nature. Any ideas?

Oh those are lovely - must have a go myself. That to me would be one of my Crinoline Ladies that I have on various pieces of china and embroidered tray cloths etc. How pretty.
