Craftily Noted


Another in my 'how to' series of projects. This is a very simple, but quite graphical card that could be sent as a note of thanks, used as an acceptance card or simply as a notelet.

You Will Need:
A6 White Card Blank
Coloured Paper - Pastel pink, peach and green
Black Dye Ink Pad
Lettering Rubber Stamps (2 fonts)
Black Fineline Pen
Ruler
Glue Stick
Scissors or Paper Trimmer
Compass
Craft Knife and Cutting Mat

Instructions:
1. Cut approximately a 4cm wide strip of pink paper and glue horizontally across the card at 2.5cm from the top. Trim excess paper at the edges of the card. Draw horizontal lines in black pen about 3mm in from the edge of the pink paper, using a ruler.

2. Stamp the word 'note' across the pink strip towards the right side, in black ink.

3. Stamp 'Just A' above and 'To Say...' below the strip.

4. Cut two 5cm diameter circles from the peacj and green papers. Draw and cut a 3.8cm diameter aperture inside each, creating the circular frames. Layer onto the edge of the card (where shown) and glue into place to finish.

This easy card could be created in a variety of colourways.
