Easy, Fun Hostess Gift

We were invited to brunch by some dear friends this Saturday and they insisted we bring nothing. Since bringing nothing is really not an option, I went to my studio and created a hostess gift. So, while we're not taking food, we are taking a hostess gift to thank our dear friends for their hospitality.

I created a set of cards, each one slightly different:

I simply used the Martha Stewart lacy border punch to create layers of lace and topped each off with a strip of decorative paper and a simple embellishment.

I created the layers by punching the lace on one side of 1" strips of card stock and gluing them to the base, which was also punched on one end. The strip of decorative paper hides the seam created by gluing the pieces on top of one another. 

Making cards is fun, easy, economical and quick. These cards are blank on the inside.

If you would like a set of similar cards, let me know in the comments. 
A set of six cards, with envelopes, is $12.00, including shipping. Embellishments will vary and may not necessarily be the ones shown.
