These two cards use a kraft cardstock for the base, printed patterns for the card fronts, punches and a couple gems and ribbon for the other embellishments. The insides of the cards are also decorated with some patterned paper.
I love how these two cards turned out! I have so many of these vellum sayings in my stash, and I can never find a good way to use them. Two of the sentiments were perfect for this themed paper, so I decided to go with 3-1/2" x 6-1/4" cards, layering the vellum for a special effect. With this patterned paper, there really isn't any need for additional embellishment!
Again, I used matching paper from the paper pad to decorate the inside of the cards to give them that extra-finished look. These cards will fit in the #6-3/4 (3-5/8" x 6-1/2") business envelopes, which you can find in most any office supply store. My local OfficeMax is where I purchased a box of 100, which will last me quite a long time. Maybe I should make this size more often!
