Flower Patch - note card gift set

I had so much fun earlier this week using the Flower Patch stamp set that I decided to make a set of note cards as a gift for a friend.

I really enjoyed deciding which colours of ink to use!

This is the original card I made:

And then I made these:

I realised I could not just give a pile of note cards and envelopes to my friend so I decided to make a box using the Envelope Punch Board.  Making boxes with this tool is so easy to do and takes just a few minutes and if you get stuck, there are lots of tutorials on my Pinterest boards

I used a piece of Whisper White A4 cardstock cut to 8 1/4" x 8 1/4".

I decorated it with a belly band made from a 2 " wide strip of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.

(If anyone knows a nicer name, please leave a comment below)!

The set of four cards fit snugly inside the box.  Making sets of note cards to give as gifts is my new favourite thing to do and I am sure my friend will love these!

Details of the products used to make this set can be found below - I haven't listed all the ink colours I used; there are so many to choose from - just use what you have and have fun!
