A Good Day Note Card Set for PP408

 It’s Sunday and time for another fun challenge over at The Paper Players! This week Joanne has an awesome theme for us: Lunchbox Love Notes. I have to admit, at first I was kind of stumped by this one. I don’t have kiddos so I wasn’t sure where to go with this challenge. But Joanne brought up a great point…you can create these little cards for ANYONE. Your kids, spouse, partner, friend, neighbor, favorite barista at Starbucks, UPS driver. You know, the people you see every day. A “love note” can be just as simple as a little hello or a thank you…or a wish for a great day. We ALL need that! 

I decided to do an assortment of note cards featuring the A Good Day stamp set and the 2017-2019 In Colors. I couldn’t decide how many cards to make, so limiting it to 5 sounded good. My thought was that these would be great cards to have on hand and could also be great to make as a gift for someone else to share the love. Just little reminders to brighten someone’s day. I love that! 
I thought this would be a great opportunity to create my cards using the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. 
The cards are a great size for little notes (5" x 4-1/2”, scored at 2-1/2”)  and have adorable matching envelopes. 
I always make sure I have them on hand. I’ve listed all of the supplies I used to make these cards at the end of this post.
I think my favorite card in this set was the little bunny card. Powder Pink, cute bunny image and lots of shimmer and sparkle. Yes, please! The little ice cream card has a lot of fun detail as well. It’s tough to see in the photo but there is glittery Wink of Stella on the ice cream scoop. 
This card is my second favorite! Lemon Lime Twist is such an awesome color. Again, there are some Wink of Stella details that are tough to see in the photos. I think this would be a fun card to tuck away for someone to find in the morning as a great reminder to make today amazing! 
We all need a positive vibe to start our day, right?
For the last 2 cards, I toned down the sparkle because that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. (I did use little bits of Wink of Stella on the thank you card though. Shhhh!) These cards are little but have little pops of detail that make them fun, like the embossed backgrounds and the tiny pop of patterned paper. They are quick and easy to create, too! 
I sure hope you will join us over at The Paper Players this week. The sketch challenge is open until Friday September 7th, 2018 at 12:00 Noon PST.

    Product List


    1. What a pretty set! I love the DP you used and the size of the card is fun too. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

    2. These are super cute...I am going to have to get some of these narrow notecards! Your colors are happy and cheerful!

    3. SO pretty. This set of In-Colours is my favourite so I love these! I used In-Colours for the same reason - 5 is a good number. I like the details you've added to each, yet using a stripe in each, a circular central image and a bow keeps them together as a set. I like your idea of giving them to other people in our daily lives - a little act of kindness. Lovely cards, Anne Marie.

    4. I love these Anne-Marie - a perfect set of little notecards that anyone would be delighted to receive! I love how much unique detail you've packed into them all, using the suite of colours to tie them in together. Gorgeous with a capital G!

    5. I feel like such a slacker... you all made entire collections of cards, and I had all I could do to make one! I love each and every one of yours Anne Marie, and also how you highlighted a different color with each card. Genius!

    6. Anne Marie, these are beautiful! Love the extra details, the colors, and the size of the notes! A wonderful set of love!

    7. Anne Marie... what a great design for multiples... super cute!

    8. Anne Marie, these are just amazing! I love them all! The colors, the sizes and just the fun details on each one! I am with you though, I am partial to the powder pink bunny! Such a fun set of cards! I hope you are having a great week! XX

    9. AM, I love this collection of cards and the fact that each one of them has such a great sentiment. I also love the bright colors - they really pop. I'm with you and Claire... the powder pink bunny is a winner!


    Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
