Quick and Easy Handmade Notecards

If you're like me, you never have any blank cards on hand for those last minute gifts, birthdays, etc. that pop up every now and then.  Problem solved!
Using some 80 lb white cardstock, I printed out some images from the Graphics Fairy onto it.  I used the 3"x4" print setting.  First I printed out one side and then I turned the paper over to print the other.  Why?  So you can fold them over to make the actual cards.  For another, I simply used my favorite Keep Calm and Carry on stamp and some red ink.  Aren't they delish?
And did you spy my latest tin which is for - moi!  I got the fabulous Marie Antoinette image from An Artful Adventure blog.  Great blog and even better Etsy shop!  Take a gander over there when you get a chance.  You will be amazed!

I'm so happy with my cards that I can't wait for the next last minute holiday, birthday, etc. to pop up!
