Birthday Gift notecards

Well, my brother-in-law turned 50 yesterday. For his birthday, I decided to make him a set of notecards. I found this chartreuse cardstock and envelopes and being that chartreuse is his FAVORITE color - I had to get these done for his birthday.

These are the first notecards I've made, so I did keep them simple. I made 3 different styles of 10 notecards each.

First is an actually "card". I used a DeNami scallop stamp and Recollection letter. "L" being the first letter of his last name. I wondered if I should use "P" for his first name...but decided on the "L". I hope that's OK - or I wasted a lot of time and energy! I added a strip of brown ribbon as well.

Here's all 10 of the cards.

This is the next one I made. Since it's not a card, but more of a postcard - I wanted to do a ribbon detail to dress it up a bit, but still keep it masculine enough. I used the same Recollections letter "L" and an EK Success border punch.

Here's this set of 10:

Lastly - I found this ribbon that just shouted out to me - so I had to buy it for the third set. Even though my color scheme was brown and chartreuse - I had to change this one to black and chartreuse because of the ribbon. I did some layering of cardstock, then punched a scallop circle and again, used the same "L". The polka dots really play up the postcard enough - so I didn't feel I had to do anymore to these.

And here are the last 10:
Well, I hope he likes these! Let me know what you think!

I love them! I saw these in my google reader and saved them before I even realized they were yours. I love this green color with the black. Very sharp.
