Note Card Set for a Bridal Shower

Note Card card set all cards


I was recently invited to a bridal shower for a dear friend and stamping customer.  Along with choosing something from her registry, I gave her a set of hand-stamped thank you cards in her wedding colors.  These were so much fun to make and super easy!  Just use Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes!


I’ll give you the details on creating these pretty cards in a minute, but first I want to show you the box I made especially to house these pretty cards in.

Note Card card set box completed



I’m super excited about how this darling box turned out, especially since I created it completely on my own.  Create a unique box for anything by simply knowing what your completed box needs to hold and measuring the space needed.

Note Card card set bottom box

Cardstock for box measures 9-1/2″ x 8″; score at 2″ and 7-1/2″ the long way and 2″ and 6″ the short way.  Be sure to use your Simply Scored Tool for perfect scoring lines.

Once your Tear & Tape Adhesive is in place, just peel off the coating strip and adhere the corners inside the adjacent side of the box.


Note Card card set lid

The cardstock for the lid  7-5/8″ x 6-1/8″.  Score at 1″ in on all 4 sides then cut into the cardstock and adhere just like the bottom of the box in Night of Navy cardstock.

Decorating the top was super fun!

  • The top of the box is Tempting Turquoise designer paper from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • I wrapped the box with a piece of Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon.
  • Next I adhered a Silver Metallic Foil Doily over the ribbon.
  • I cut a circle from Whisper White Cardstock using Circle FramelitsCircle Framelits are on the retiring product list!
  • Next I created a tag using Perfect Pennants stamp set.  This versatile stamp set is retiring, too – it’s a must have in your collection!  I stamped using VersaMark Ink onto Night of Navy cardstock, then sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder and set it with the Heat Tool.
  • I also created the two silver banner pieces at the end in much the same way.  I stamped on Whisper White Cardstock using VersMark Ink, then used Silver Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.  That image is also in the Perfect Pennants stamp set.
  • I added an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment and created a bow with the Bow Builder Punch used with a piece of Silver Foil Sheet.

A set of 12 cards and envelopes pops into this sweet box and makes a special presentation!


Now back to my cards!

Note Card card set single card


  • Creating a gift of a large set of cards couldn’t be easier with the Note Cards & Envelopes.  I cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to create a border, then an additional Whisper White piece of cardstock a little smaller to act as my card front.
  • I used Work of Art stamp set to create the “swooshes” – they’re stamped in Tempting Turquoise Ink and I began with a fully inked stamp then just stamped three times without reinking the stamp.
  • Next I stamped the Watercolor Thank You stamp using Night of Navy Ink.  This terrific single stamp (wood mount only) is on the retiring list so be sure to grab it for this and many other projects!
  • A little butterfly from Tempting Turquoise cardstock gives the cards a bit of dimension – just use the Bitty Butterfly Punch.
  • A row of three Rhinestones dresses up the butterfly nicely.


I texted my sister in Arizona a picture of my completed set and she just had to have one too!  I made her a set in Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.  These turned out pretty, too – you could use any two colors you’d like – and of course, I mailed them to her and forgot to snap a picture!  Oh, well – you can imagine them with these pretty colors:


  1. Perfect Pennants stamp set
  2. Watercolor Thank You stamp
  3. Iced Rhinestone Embellishments
  4. Circles Collection Framelits

Thanks so much, Caroline! I didn’t make my sister a box because she just wanted to get her thank you’s out in the mail, but I did make her 20 of the cards! I thought I had taken a picture of them before I put them in the mail, but I must have forgotten. Maybe she can send me a picture and I can update my post!

Thanks for leaving your comment, Mary. Your comment about the dimensions has made me think that I will change my blog posts and post dimensions more often, even with cards. I sometimes (maybe wrongly) assume that others can follow it without, but it makes things so much easier and more enjoyable when you know just what size to make something!
