Sorry I am a bit delayed on my posts, I have been sick. I am finally starting to feel a little better, hurray! With Valentines Day approaching I thought I would make some fun Valentines inspired note cards. I designed them so you will get two cards out of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Print using plain white card stock. I like 80 or 100 lb smooth finish paper for a nice firm card. You can find card stock at XpedX, Staples or Office Depot. Or just cut your 12x12 scrapbooking card stock down to 8 1/2 x 11 size. Add a zebra or leopard print pen and you'll have a great girlfriend gift. It is fast and easy to print a bunch of note card sets in just one evening!
You will need:
Plain white regular letter size card stock. I like 80-100lb weight.
Plain white invitation sized envelopes. Walmart sells a box of 100 for only a few dollars.
Pen (optional) I found a pack of 10 animal print pens at Staples for $4 & Ribbon (optional)

Choose your favorite color,or mix and match.
Print out the design on heavy white card stock. Set your printer to the highest resolution possible. Also set your printer to use heavy paper, or cover weight paper if it allows you select.
Cut your sheet of paper exactly down the middle at 5 1/2"
Sometimes printers are slightly off and you may need to trim your edges a little more if needed.
Fold the notes in half using a bone folder or any other flat tool to get a crisp edge.
Include a leopard or zebra print pen for gift giving. Also add plain white envelopes.
Tie up your note cards with a bow or pack in a plastic baggie or plain stationery box.
Feel free to make for yourself, or gifts, just don't sell the design. Thanks!
