Something new in the Occasions Catalog that you might overlook (I did!) are the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes. These Narrow Note Cards are perfect for enclosure cards in gifts, perhaps for a birthday, as I have decorated these! Use them for a birthday, Valentines, in a wedding gift – whatever the occasion!
These note cards measure 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and the envelopes measure 2-3/4″ x 4-3/4″. Going by the envelope size, I doubt that these are big enough to send in the mail. You should check with your post office. If you did want to mail one of these Narrow Note Cards, you could just place the note card or even the note card in an envelope into a larger envelope and mail it that way. It looks to me that the post office requires an envelope (doesn’t matter the size of the card inside, it’s the envelope size) that is 3 1/2″ x 5″ at a minimum. Check this information HERE.
Now Stampin’ Up! also has the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes that we have always used. They are also available in Very Vanilla. These note cards are 3 1/2″ x 5″ and the envelopes are 1/8″ larger on each measurement so they are absolutely okay to mail. Here is a photo of the two kinds of note cards.
As you can see, the Narrow Note Cards have envelopes that run lengthwise and have a curved flap on the end! Very cute! I say have both kinds on hand! Quick and easy to just stamp or embellish slightly and you are ready to go! They are really so handy! You don’t have to cut cardstock, just pull out a notecard, possible stamp a greeting (or not!), maybe stamp a cute image or pretty flower on the outside or add some designer paper and ribbon. Who knows? It’s all cute and easy!
These Narrow Note Cards (#145583) are great for quick and easy embellishing to add your personal touch to a gift or even just a little note you are going to hand someone or stick in a lunch bag, purse, suitcase, or briefcase! Yes, they even would hold a gift card! I just tried! You will find them on page 19 in the Occasions Catalog. Really the photo is off the bottom of the page so you mostly only see the printed description. But now you know that they are there! You get 20 for only $8.00 and that includes the cute envelopes!
To fancy up my Narrow Note Cards, I added a layer of the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper and a greeting. The one card has a bow hand cut from another of the patterns with all the photographed bows for a little embellishment.
Today would be a good day to place an order for a 3-month Prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription because today is the deadline for receiving the January 2018 Kit. Then you can add on the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes, some designer paper, maybe a new stamp set and whatever else you like and collect a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with every $50 increment! And you would already earn a Free Sale-A-Bration product just with the Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Kits. You would have to pay shipping on the free item you chose, so to get best value, order a few other things as long as you are paying the shipping already! That’s what I would do!
