Giftcard Set

Ever look for a simple but elegant gift to give a friend, co-worker or family member, or even as a gift to a new bride? These blank note cards are so easy to make but look like they took a lot of time.

Basically I choose my color theme, cut my base cards into 4x6 from white cardstock, then die cut the bottom edge of my pattern paper (or embossed cardstock), trimmed the other edges slightly smaller than the card, and matted onto the base card.

I then made oval circles (added an outline in coordinating colors) using Microsoft Word and then layered text boxes with my text inside and printed them out on white cardstock. Then using my Spellbinder I cut both scallop and regular ovals.

I assembled the oval tag my matting the MS Word ovals onto the plain ovals, popped dotted that on top of the scallop circle, then matted that onto the base card. Then put the whole pkg into a clear box with some envelopes and wrapped it with some pretty white ribbon. There were 4 cards of each of the 3 designs for a total of 12 cards. You could swap out Thank You instead of using a Monogram as I did.
