THIS SKETCH WAS SPARKED WHILE I WAS PERUSING TARGET AND SAW THESE ADORABLE NOTECARDS (THEY'RE NOT ONLINE SO HEAD TO YOUR LOCAL TARGET!). I'VE NOTICED THAT WITHOUT PRE-MADE CARD BASES, I TYPICALLY AVOID CARD-MAKING. I DON'T KNOW WHY BECAUSE IT'S NOT AS THOUGH MAKING A CARD BASE IS THAT DIFFICULT ... BUT WITH THESE IN HAND, I KNEW I COULD MAKE SOMETHING SUPER CUTE. PLUS THE FACT THAT THEY COME WITH ENVELOPES MAKES MY LIFE SO MUCH EASIER!

TO MAKE THIS CARD, I STARTED BY WRAPPING THE EDGE OF THE CARD IN A HOT PINK DOILY. I THEN PUNCHED TWO HOLES WITH MY AWL. THOSE HOLES ARE SLIGHTLY INSIDE THE EDGES OF THE CARD FRONT AND ARE WHERE I THREADED MY TWINE. THEN, I KNOTTED IT IN A BOW AROUND MY SENTIMENT TAG. TO FINISH IT OFF, I SIMPLY TRIMMED AROUND THE SCALLOPS FROM AN ASHLEY GOLDBERG PAPER (SORRY IT'S NO LONGER AVAILABLE) AND ATTACHED THE SCALLOPS ATOP THE CARD WITH TOMBOW ADHESIVE FOR ADDED BALANCE ON THE CARD FRONT.

ON THE INSIDE OF THE CARD, I LEFT THE REST OF THE DOILY AND THE BACK OF THE TWINE SHOWING. THEN, I MATTED MY LETTER TO A BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED PAPER AND ATTACHED THAT TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CARD. WITH THAT, MY CARD WAS COMPLETE AND READY TO SEND IN THE MAIL!
