Dry Embossed Card Set with Case

I made a set of note cards as a hostess gift for our neighbor last week.
The fronts of the card are dry embossed using Cuttlebug snowflakes
and a Sizzix embossing folder (which Sizzix calls "texture fades").
I wish there was a name on the Sizzix folder.
It came as part of a Tim Holtz Bird Talk 2 clear stamp set.
The card case is made with a simple paper folder.
A few more details for making the case are HERE.

I added a JustRite monogram to some of the cards.
Used scallop punches and layered with black paper.

Decided to keep some cards plain and simple--just the embossed front.
Hope my friend likes them.

My case is made with a paper school folder
with the 2 embossed layers and the monogram attached to the front.
Cards and envelopes go inside the pockets.
Fold down and trim.
For the ties, punch a hole on the side, insert ribbon and knot on the inside.
Tie a bow to close the case.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Pretty. Gave all my paper folders to the school this year. Wish you were my neighbor.
