Cooking With Cricut Challenge #82

Hello everyone! Welcome to another Challenge Wednesday at COOKING WITH CRICUT ! This weeks challenge is celebrating National Letter Writing Month! (You know, the old-fashioned way to keep in touch!) :-)  This week, we were asked to create a card to send to someone or a scrapbook layout featuring a letter.

For my project this week, I decided to make a note card folder, complete with 4 note cards and envelopes! I got this idea from Sheila at SHE'S A SASSY LADY .  She made me a little folder with monogrammed note cards and envelopes and I absolutely love it! Click on her blog title and visit her awesome blog!! There is always lots going on over there!

Anyway, here is how I made the folder:

Start with an 8.5" x 11" piece of card stock and score and fold at 5.5" (long side) and 2.5" (short side). I took a pic of these score lines on plain paper instead of the pattern that I'm using so that you could see the lines better.

Here it is folded up:

Punch a hole about 1/2" in from each side so you can put ribbon through for your closure.

Cut hand/pen image and layers from SENTIMENTALS @ 3.44"H. Mount on the front of the folder with pop dots.

Cut out cards from SENTIMENTALS @ 3.5"H.  I embellished them by inking the edges and using my white gel pen. (Big surprise on the pen, I know! ) :-) 

There ya' have it! A cute and functional set of note cards to get me started writing a note to someone special and sending it by snail mail! :-)

So, who are you going to send a special note to? Create something with this week's theme and head on over to COOKING WITH CRICUT to link your creation and be entered to win a prize! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your day!
