Quick & Easy Notecards

I'm always in a hurry and never enough time so I'm really excited about Quick & Easy Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes. They give me a quick pretty base with 4 great colors to start with--so I don't have to choose among 50 colors--just 4--that limits my choosing time significantly.

Then the scalloped edge on the note card and on the matching envelope really adds  pizzazz to my creation with no effort on my part...so now all I need to do is add a bit of decoration on the front and I'm good to go.

Today I'm using a cute little new stamp and die bundle from the new catalog  called Pretty Pavilion.Since the note card is slightly smaller than a regular sized card I chose a couple of the smaller stamps to use....here's the result: Scalloped note card pretty pavilion

I stamped in Memento ink so I could use my Blend alcohol markers. I love my Blends--the color flows so evenly and brightly...I never have to worry about streaking. And when one marker runs dry (yes, I use them a lot) I only have to purchase one marker and not the Combo.
