Vintage Postcard Set

Hello! Monika here today, bringing you a mini note card set with a darling case. It's super easy and so much fun to make.
I decided to combine Vintage Postcard, Wildflowers, and Friendship Script Background clear stamp sets. My goal was to make the case from one 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, and adjust the note cards to whatever size the case would fit. The case ended up being 4" x 4-1/2".
The front is decorated with designer paper from Victoria Gardens Collection by Echo Park, satin ribbon, Baker's Twine, and a hand-made felt flower. The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch, the border punch is from Fiskars. I also used some pearls and added stitching to the top edge of the DP. The magnets for the closure are from Basic Gray.
For the 3-3/4" x 4-3/8" note cards, I just layered all the pretty images with SU! Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Crumb Cake inks. On 2 of the cards, I used vellum. Stamped Friendship Script on the pieces with Crumb Cake ink... then sponged and distressed the edges. I used Tim Holtz mini staples to secure the vellum to the card. I did add tiny pieces of double sided tape here and there to make sure the edges were secured.
I also used Baker's Twine and pearls to decorate my set.
Hope you give this a try and surprise someone with this lovely set. There will be a tutorial coming on the case itself on our SplitCoast Member Forum at the end of March, so keep an eye out for it.
Thank you for visiting!
