Awesome Glittery Gift

Dreamweaver Stencils + Art Glitter = SPARKLY FUN!!



This month is the annual collaboration between Dreamweaver Stencils and Art Glitter, and it promises to have double the glitter and double the fun! Follow the trail of bling all of this month on the Art Glitter blog, and the Dream It Up! blog. 

The colors and smells of autumn always make me think of my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. And although I love all the food associated with it, I really love the sentiment of the day: GIVING THANKS. 

So today I thought I'd share with you a quick, easy and quite inexpensive stationary set that I love to make to give as a hostess/teacher/neighbor gift. It also works great to make for a Birthday present.

With only one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11"  cardstock and a few scores using your scoreboard, you have a folder that holds A2 size cards and envelopes. (I usually put 4 cards and envelopes inside). Here is a picture of the folder and one of the inside cards, both using the LJ 906 Maple branch stencil that has been embossed with Copper paste and sprinkled with Art Glitter ultrafine opaque glitter:





And here is a picture of the inside showing the pockets which hold the cards and envelopes:

If this has inspired you to create your own notecard set and you'd like the template for creating the folio, let me know. I'd be glad to send you the instructions.

I hope you'll play along with this month's challenge of "Awesome in Autumn." Just link your creations to the linkytool on the Dream It Up!
