Love Letter DSP Stationary Gift Set
This is super easy to make. Just take an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock and score and fold in half at 5 1/2. Then score the other end at 2 inches, fold up and adhere the side flaps only with Sticky Strip.
The note cards are just 8 1/2 by 11 pieces of card stock cut in 4 pieces of 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. And the Very Vanilla was cut to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.
I used two patterns from the Love Letter DSP on the front. I stamped the images from Artistic Etchings on Very Vanilla with Riding Hood Red and Basic Black. The Eiffel Tower was cut out and popped up with Stampin dimensionals. Amour was punched out with the 1 3/8 by 5/8 inch oval punch. That was layered onto a Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/4 by 7/8 inch Oval punch and then onto a Riding Hood Red piece punched with the Scallop Oval punch. A piece of retired 1 1/4 inch Riding Hood Red Striped grosgrain ribbon, adhered with Sticky Strip ties nicely to close the folder.
For the note cards I stamped the "j" from Contempo Alphabet in Basic Black and Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla. and used the 1 1/4 inch Circle punch. That was layered onto a Riding Hood Red/Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch and then onto a Riding Hood Red/Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle punch and popped up with Stampin dimensionals.
Here's my recipe:
