Introduction: Trendy Note Card Gift Set

Black and white is totally trendy right now, and what's hotter than adding a little "bling" to your life? So here's a super quick (only six steps!) note card design that you can make as a gift for that really hip gal in your life - or keep for yourself and use them as thank you's for all the not-so-hip gifts you'll be getting for Christmas!

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Paper:
White cardstock (you'll need sheets at least 12" long for these cards)
Black cardstock
Stamps:
Dingbats foam stamp set by Making Memories
Ink:
Craft White from Stampin' Up!
Tools:
Paper trimmer
Stylus or other scoring tool
Adhesive:
Mounting Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives, or other paper adhesive
Other:
Peel and Stick rhinestones (can be found at any craft supply store)

Step 2: Cut Paper

Cut black cardstock to 1 5/8" x 5 1/2"
Cut white cardstock to 4 1/2" x 12"

Step 3: Score and Fold

Scoring the white cardstock before folding it will give you a very nice, crisp, professional looking crease!
Score by placing the paper under the trimmer, and then gently running your stylus along the groove.

Step 4: Stamp

Stamp design on black cardstock using white ink.

Step 5: Adhere

Adhere the stamped piece to the white cards.

Step 6: Add Bling

Add the rhinestones to the stamped image, and you're done!

    Mmm... I don't have the time to order online. If I were to go to a crafts store, would I be able to find the same material?

    Yes, you should be able to find all of the supplies for these cards at any crafts store with a good scrapbooking/paper crafting section. They are all very basic things - black and white cardstock, paper trimmer, etc. The foam stamp set I used is very popular for scrapbookers, so you will be able to find it at most scrapbooking supply stores. The white ink pad I used is from Stampin' Up!, which is a direct-sales type company, so you wouldn't be able to buy that exact same ink pad at a store, but you shouldn't have a problem finding a white ink pad by another company. I'm not sure where you live, but there are two large crafts store chains that carry all of these items: Michaels and JoAnn

    Happy crafting!

    I love your photo work--nice hands, too!

    Nice Handicraft...:)

    Very nice and elegant cards. I'm sure this will start a few people off on their scrap-booking hobby. Nice Instructable!
