CASology #91: DIY Greeting Cards using Post-it Note

by May Park-

Hi crafty friends! Last week we had a ton of wonderful CAS creations over at CASolgoy! With all the white space in the entries, we were in CAS heaven. Keep it up! And it’s time to get creative again, and here is this week’s cue card:

As always, you can interpret the word literally or go for something a bit more outside the box. I love seeing what you come up with each week and I’m ready for a fresh batch of inspiration from you as I visit your blogs. Without further ado, here is my take on NOTE.

When I heard of NOTE, I immediately thought of Post-it note. I always have it handy on my desk. I have to own all the colors and sizes that 3M carries. Couldn’t get enough! I mostly use the sticky notes for masking technique when it comes to card making. But it was so fun bringing them on the main stage in my card.

For my card, I die cut the letters from the sticky notes using Alpha die set from Avery Elle. I drew some pencil lines to make my white panel to look like an actual notepad. I stamped the sentiment from the Just Hello stamp set by Neat&Tangled. Then I matted the panel over the chevron patterned paper to finish off the card.

As you can see above, I didn’t adhered the letters entirely, so they were curved up slightly in the air. That’s exactly the sticky notes look like in real life, right?

Since my first card didn’t meet the CAS criteria, I created another one. I rolled up a piece of yellow sticky note and tie it in bow using May Arts twine string. Then I added the sentiment from the PTI Simple Sentiments stamp set in black. Did you notice that the scroll also represented letter I? It completed my sentiment “I miss you.”

Back in high school, I loved to write some letters to my friends. I torn a black page from my notebook, wrote the letter on it, and rolled/folded it up, and passed to my friend in class secretly. I bet I’m not only one who did. 😉 Miss my old school friends so much! That’s the reason, I made a roll of paper as a focal point for my Miss You Card.

It’s hard to see from the photo, but I used some textured white cardstock to add some interest to my super CAS card. It looks way better in person. I think this is the simplest card I’ve ever made! Anyone can make this! You can write some private memo inside of the scroll before rolling. That’s it for today. Hope you like my cards and get some inspiration.
