Psssttt… do you have patterned paper scraps?  If so, you have to try this card!  This card is a note card size, so a bit smaller than a traditional handmade size card.  I love these cards for several reasons – first, they are budget friendly!

A package of note cards from Stampin' Up! have 20 cards and 20 envelopes all for $7!!!  Lucky 7, right?

These cards can be made faster as the size is smaller – oh, and they are post office approved, which many think you can't.

And I also think these cards are often sitting on my shelf begging to be used with patterned paper scraps!

All it took as 6 strips that are 1/2″ x 3″.  I am sure you have plenty of those sitting around.  I went with all different black and white patterns, but they could all be the same.  Trim one end into a banner if you want to.  Then find your lightest pattern to stamp your sentiment on to.  I did stamp my sentiment twice so the ink was darker (yay for the Stamparatus!)

Then some white card stock, black card stock, and some ribbon (bow tied with a 10 Second Bow Maker!).  That's all you need for your card.

Grab another patterned paper for your envelope flap if you so desire, just for an added pop of fun.

Do all that quick magic, and this is what you have…



Adorable, right?  Now all you need are your supplies…
