Beautifully Happy Note Cards in Mango Melody

While I was making the Soft Seafoam cards with layers in THIS POST, I took out several Note Cards and Envelopes. When I make Note Cards, it is almost always without any layers. I’ve done layers on a Note Card, but I just prefer SIP (stamps, ink, paper).

There’s something adorable about Note Cards. They are 3-1/2″ x 5″ but can still be sent through the mail with a regular stamp. The advantage of a Note Card is that they are the perfect vehicle for sending thoughts and cheer. There’s just enough room to write 2-3 sentences, and slipping in a picture. Or, and this goes way back, remember sharing a recipe with someone? Or a clipping from Dear Abby? Using paper and ink instead of an email? Trust me, the obligation to filling up an entire card or stationery keeps people from Real Mail. Keep in touch. Make the effort. Keep it simple.

BONUS NOTES: If you sign up for free to have Informed Delivery at, you will get an email every day with photographs of the mail you have delivered that day. This is especial important for two things: expected checks or important mail, or if you have a post office box and wonder if you need to go there today or tomorrow.

If you have any questions, I would love for you to leave me a comment!

  1. I need to try note cards more. I rarely use them. However, these are beautiful and would be great to have on hand when needed.

    1. Thank you, Linda! You gotta try it. Start with an index card for scrap layouts. Or just plain copy paper. That’s a great place for trying out color combinations too.
