Nikki Sivils Notecard Set Using Bella Blue And Oscar Too Line

Hi Everybody!
Can you believe this is my 5th day posting in a ROW??  Honestly, I never thought I could because I'm so busy with my family, but Nikki Sivils paper is SO easy to work with that I can create projects really quickly.  So this time I used the Bella Blue And Oscar Too Line.  I think pages that are scallop shaped are so gorgeous, but almost too gorgeous!  I never want to cover them up.  I took a look at the scalloped page from this line, and had the idea to create a notecard set.  You could seriously create this whole set (with envelopes) in about 20-30 minutes.  Even less if you don't doodle as much as I did :P

Here's what you start with:

  • Cut that into 4 symetrical trianges in wedge shape (cut vertical, then horizontal).
  • Paste with the point of the wedge in the bottom left of the card.  You may have to play with it a little bit and do some trimming, but nothing major. 

 Here's how it turned out:

*Using some of the same stamps that you use from the cards on the envelope really bring the them together.
*Making matching envelopes makes this look like a complete set.







And if you want to win some Nikki Silvis paper of your own, remember to leave a comment on each of the posts listed below for a total of 7 chances to win!
*One entry per person per post ;)
