This was one of the projects I worked on this weekend, a notecard set of four in a gift bag with envelopes. I am trying to use up of some of my retired paper and so was able to put this older holiday designer paper to good use. I did use jumbo eyelets and the Crop-A-Dile at the top of the bag so that I could slip some Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon through on both sides.

The base of the first card is Certainly Celery with layers of Night of Navy and Vanilla cardstock along with the designer paper. The "for you" sentiment comes from the Fresh Cuts set, which is current. Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and Celery brads were used to embellish.
The second card has a base of Night of Navy with layers of Certainly Celery. Again, the same sentiment as well as Celery brads were used, along with three stamps from the Baroque Motifs set inked in the same two colors and cut out before adhering with dimensionals.
The third card also uses a Night of Navy base with a layer of Certainly Celery and then designer paper. Again, Baroque Motifs stamp set was used and the images were cut out. I did place a rhinestone brad in the center as well as used the Celery grosgrain ribbon and brads again.
The final card has a base of Certainly Celery with layers of Night of Navy and designer paper to match the bag. I used the scalloped edge punch of a 2-5/8" square under the stamped images from Baroque Motifs. Another rhinestone brad was used as well as the Celery grosgrain ribbon again.
This set was very simple to make and very striking in person. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
