Sweet Always monogram note card set

These are pics of the monogramed note card set I made for my sister's 40th birthday. She's a big fan of pink and really likes orange too, so I think of her when using the Sweet Always dsp.

The holder for the notes is just an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of Regal Rose cardstock scored in half at 5 1/2 inches. Then it's scored at 2 in. from the bottom to form the pocket. I used two different patterns from the Sweet Always papers. The flowers are from Big Flowers and Always. The "notes" uses the Short Order Alpha and a pink pirouette punched out with the Key Tag. To keep it closed I used 5/8 in. chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

The note cards are made using an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of regal rose, cut in quarters. I used a 1 in. strip of the brown polka dots paper, adhered that to the Whisper white cardstock. I stamped the Contempo Alphabet "m" in regal rose on whisper white, punched it out with the 1 1/4 in. circle punch, layered that on a 1 3/8 in. chocolate chip circle and then onto a regal rose scalloped circle punch. The matching envelope has the flower from the Always set on the flap.
