Magnetic Card Holder and Cards

I was going to just make one card and this is what I ended up with. I did make the card. I was going to leave it blank on the bottom to stamp what I needed when I needed it. But then I thought I would just go ahead and stamp on it and make another card and leave it blank. Well, I had the Stampin' Up! "Sincere Salutations" set out so why not make another card and use the stamps in that set?

First is the picture of the four cards I made. I took the Stampin' Up! "Boho Blossoms" punch and the "Sending Love" designer paper to do the "flowers" across the tops of each card. No stamping involved there at all. Just some punching, some pretty paper and brads!

Next I centered the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon on the front of the card panel. In doing that it left me the bottom half for the words. I made the birthday card you see, a thinking of you card, a get well card and a thank you card. A variety that is commonly used. I thought about using one of those card box patterns that are around on other blogs but then I thought I should design my own and that is exactly what I did.

The front of the box is done using the "Sending Love" designer paper and a ribbon is wrapped around the layers and a bow added. It made it just sweet enough to be cute!

The inside of the holder is set up for one side to hold the cards and the other side to hold the envelopes. And it all folds up like a wallet and it stays closed with a magnet.

The pattern is available in my web store. You can access it by clicking the link at the top right of the sidebar or you can click here to go to the store. You can use these for Stamp Camps, Craft Fairs, Hostess Gifts and Customer Appreciation Gifts. These would also make a great teacher gift too!

The pattern has diagrams, photos and step by step instructions for you to make your own card holder. You can decorate it as you wish and make coordinating cards to go with it. They really do make a lovely gift!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
