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

White cardstock (you'll need sheets at least 12" long for these cards)
Black cardstock
Dingbats foam stamp set by Making Memories
Craft White from Stampin' Up!
Paper trimmer
Stylus or other scoring tool
Mounting Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives, or other paper adhesive

Step 2: Cut Paper

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

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!
