NOT a Christmas Card

Nope. Not a Christmas card. This is a Christmas PRESENT. And there's nothing particularly Christmas-y about it, is there?


These are going to my father-in-law, who lives out west. The Bold and Free set by Mark's Finest Papers gave the perfect image for him. The feather is stamped in Memento dark brown and the pen is a Zig writer in dark brown. I accented the envelopes with the little feather in the set. The whole sheebang will go into a clear card box from Papertrey.

This set of single-panel notecards was made the old-fashioned way...I drew the lines using a template as I show in this tutorial HERE. It's a super-easy way to make a fast and extremely economical gift. I'm about to get jiggy with making a bunch of these for Christmas. It's so easy to vary the stamp image to customize the set for any loved one!

  1. Gorgeous Susan and a perfect masculine gift (there are probably a few females who wouldn't mind it either).

  2. What a lovely set! I read the tutorial and hope it may help me to draw a straight line. I have enjoyed all your inspiring cards this week for the OLW challenge.

  8. That stamp set is perfect for a western gentleman's note card set. What a thoughtful gift that will keep on giving when he sends a note to a friend or loved one.

  9. Perfect gift. Thanks for the tutorial. I'm just finishing off Christmas cards that must be in the mail on Monday for overseas. Then I'm going to be trying to get a couple of sets of these done for friends.
