June Quote of the Month

The June quote was: "There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship."
Saint Thomas Aquinas.

A friend who used to teach at my local rubber stamp store invited a bunch of us over for an open house for stamping products and we did a couple of projects, one being a note card holder. I decided to use the idea for this month's Q.O.T.M.

The holder is simple and is just a single piece of cardstock creased and folded to hold the note cards. I then took another piece of 130 LB cardstock and colored it using direct-to-paper with pigment inks and overstamped it.

I stamped and colored the little girls and attached them to the front piece, then added the quote with a little frame. The holder is held together with a piece of ribbon.

Since I do not have an envelope die cut I used one of the envelopes from my sample and cut them out of fancy paper and edged them with decal scissors. I stamped little note cards to fit inside the envelopes.

Clever idea! Love the background, such rich bright colors, the grils are adorable as well. Great project.
