Here’s a quick and cute Fresh-Cut Note for a friend. I love this little set of 15 Stampin’ UP! die-cut cards and 15 envelopes. Beautiful alone (Whisper White) or adorable with a little jazzing up. At 4″ x 4″ (envelopes 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ envies) they are ideal for thank you’s or gift giving.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- For serious punch to the front of the card, I layered the Bella Toile Background stamp on top. Wait to remove the die cut pieces so that you don’t ink through to the interior of the card.
- A 5 Petal Punch in Crushed Curry really pops when tucked behind the die cut.
- Stampin’ Up!’s corduroy buttons are one of my favorite embellishments. They come in Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Basic Gray (used here). I slipped a sliver of Crushed Curry card stock through the button holes for a coordinating knot.
- Embossing the envelope flap with Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Finial Press Embossing Folder and my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine creates an elegant polish.
