Berry Sweet and Simple Notecard

Hidee ho, neighbors! A happy Thursday to you! I have a simple little notecard to show you today. I got a few new stamps last weekend and my strawberries by Lockhart Stamp Co. are by far, my favorite. I couldn't wait to ink this one up and get it put on a card. Because I love the image and the coloring is so pretty to look at, (to me anyway) I decided that the card would be a plain notecard without a sentiment. I like to keep a few like this on hand. I write notes to teachers, use them as thank you notes, and even write quick birthday notes inside if I think the recipient will appreciate the front image. A plain set of notecards makes a perfect last minute gift too.

This is a 4.25inch square card . I love this size! I have made several square cards lately since discovering this size. Because it is the same width as an A2 card, it can fit in an A2 envelope and won't require extra postage. The construction of this card is pretty self explanatory. I think we all know how to use a corner rounder. For those that don't paper craft and corner rounding is still a mystery, this card will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop as soon as I can get it listed. My supply list is below. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love that stamp. It looks hand drawn. So cute! Great point with the note cards with out sentiment.
    I see some of my friends have popped over. Everyone is loving your stuff. (I got several email saying that they didn't know how to post a link on their blog to another blog, but that they came to visit and went to your shop and at least one that made some purchase.) =] Great stuff!

  2. Simply gorgeous! I love the way you've colored the image and it goes great with the plaid paper. LOVE IT!
