Note Cards using Cupcakes and Carousels from Stampin Up



Here is my latest tutorial on YouTube.

I wanted to make some note cards like I have done before but did not want to do 3x3 cards so I decided to see what 4 note cards from a piece of A4 paper would look like and I like the result.  If you are not in UK then the standard size paper from your country would still work I am sure.

So here is what I used to make 4 little note cards:
Half a sheet of A4 in Mint Macaroon and half a sheet of A4 in Island Indigo for the card blanks.
Each card blank measures 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th (inches)
Each was scored at 2 15/16th (using the Stampin Up trimmer makes it easy to score this precisely)

Then I cut 6 mats in Very Vanilla card stock - 3 7/8th x 2 11/16th
This will give you 4 mats for the inserts and 2 for the card front.
Then I cut 2 mats in Island Indigo - 3 7/8th x 2 11/16th
I also cut 2 strips in Island Indigo - 2 11/16th x 1/4 inch
I also needed 2 scraps of Very Vanilla to stamp the heart on.
then out of a sheet of DSP from Cupcakes and Carousels I cut 2 mats 3 5/8th x 2 7/16th
Out of a different sheet from DSP pad I cut 2 squares 2 1/8th x 2 1/8th

The stamp set I used was You're So Sweet and I also used the corresponding die set Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.

I also made a gift box for the cards and some envelopes.  I will post details of this with the video tutorial.  So call back later in the week :-)
