A "fresh" little note....


I don't know about you, but I really, REALLY like the Fresh Cut Notes that are in the NEW Fall-Winter 2008 IB&C!!  They are so easy to "dress up" and make adorable little cards with.  They also don't take a lot of time to do that with.  There's not much you need to do other than choose how you're going to layer your flower images and if you're going to layer CS or DSP behind the laser-cut flower window.  I always do because it bothers me to see what I write inside from the front of the card before it's opened.  Anyway, then you can decide what embellishments to add, what stamps you want to use (so far I've exclusively used the Fresh Cuts stamp set) and then you stamp, layer, adhere, tie, and tah-dah!  Super cute and super easy!  The Fresh Cut Notes cards come 15 to a pack AND they have envelopes included!!!  I love them!!!

See ya back here on Monday.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

PS - If somebody doesn't leave me a comment that even just lets me know you were here I'm going to start getting sad!  I haven't heard from people in a while (other than friends letting me know who made that card the other day).  Where are you peeps?  Thanks for the birthday wishes already from some of you, too!!! :)

  4. Marie,
    This card is beautiful!

  5. Marie,
    This card is beautiful. Welcome back from convention ... missed your daily uploads!

  6. I think you should find some people to visit on a regular basis and leave comments and hopefully they will do the same. I belong to the SBS4 (Sisterhood of Blogging Stampers 4) group and we do that for each other. I found my group over on SCS.
    Love your bright card...orange isn't one of my favorite colors but this carries it well. I love the cards I've seen made with this set (although I would not have bought it myself!)

  7. Beautiful card - thanks for sharing! Clara

  8. Marie:

    This is so sweet! I like easy...

  10. I'm here, I'm here. . .I still haven't used my Fresh Cut notes yet. I love this one since I loooooooove orange. I don't have the punches to match this but I absolutely love the vellum flower and felt flower on this one.

  11. I love the card! I am trying to think if I got that stamp or if I was who has it. It is pretty cute!! Love how you used it.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.

Marie :)
