Weekend DIY: Glitter Note Cards

Ask any of my friends and they will tell you… I’m way too into stationery for my own good.  I love nothing better than thick cardstock, an engraved monogram, and maybe a little sparkle.  I have also been known to judge a wedding by it’s invitation.  Alas, stationery is one thing I definitely prefer not to splurge on.  I’ll head to the paper store, buy nice (plain) cards and colorful envelopes… and embellish them on my own.  It also makes a great gift.  (Bundle a set of ten cards with some hot pink envelopes for the perfect present).  Today I’ve partnered up with EKSuccess Tools to make a pretty glittery version.  Trust me, this project is so easy that anyone can do it and everyone will think your stationery is Kate Spade.

    Grace, Your notecards are so professional – at first I thought you were trying to emulate the first picture!

    I definitely judge weddings on their invitations too! It’s the graphic designer in me, I guess.
