You’ll want to store this idea on how to make a set of 6 DIY Cards on a budget! Great as a gift idea for teachers or as birthday gift ideas. You could even make a stack of these as thank you cards as a bridal gift.

I’ve used three ink colors and just one stamp set with the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes for a quick and impressive gift.  Be sure to scroll down to see the pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies for today’s project.

6 DIY Cards Details

The Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes are sold pre-cut and pre-scored in a pack of 20 for only $7. Just think – gorgeous cards in minutes without having to cut and score. These note cards measure 5″ x 3 1/2″ (folded) and have coordinating envelopes.


You’ll find the quality of this cardstock thicker than you might expect. Since they are intended to be stamped, inserted and sealed, the envelope provides the perfect fit without the need for embellishments.


I used Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron for my flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set (page 116). The greetings are stamped in Basic Gray and are from the same set. The best part about this stamp set is that there are numerous greetings available to vary the cards, making them a great gift set.


Finish off your gift set with a simply cardstock belly band. I provide lots of tips about creating this simple closure in today’s video.

Circle punches make creating the focal point layers on this belly band quick and easy.


Cutting Dimensions

  • Mint Macaron cardstock for the belly band is cut 1 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
