First up is the card. I took some scraps of decorative paper from my stash and made a little quilted pattern out of 1" squares. Then faux-stitched around the edge.
I know the Build-a-Wreath set is meant to have the wreath as the focus, but I couldn't resist this bloom and butterfly. I stamped those in the center of the frame and finished my card off with a bit of ribbon.
I paired it with a simple box with one of those sweet wreaths on top. You can tuck a little gift inside and you're good to go!

One would think that being a cardmaker I'd have a cute set of notecards or stationery to use at home or at work. But the truth is I create for others so much that when it comes to writing a note- I'm usually scrounging around my desk for a post-it or scrap of paper!
I decided to make a fun little stationery set for myself that I can leave out on my desk and refill as needed. Something that I can grab and have all the supplies at hand.
I packaged everything up in one of these empty stamp cases. That way when it's not in use, I can tuck it in a drawer or leave it on my desk and it still looks good!
Inside, I have notecards, envelopes, stickers I made myself (by running through my Xyron), buttons in a glassine bag, and I can use the twine that's around the case and around the glassine bag.
Here's a close-up of the notecards themselves. I stamped the adorable little typewriter from Writer's Desk along with one of the letters from the set.
On the back of the envelope I stamped one of the leaves from Build-a-Wreath: Spring and then added my initials around it.
