New belle and burger cards



I just wanted to show my new business cards...that's my super fabu rives BFK tan printing paper that I splurged on last week~ inspiration from pretty paper. The birdies are from a vintage napkin set that Cinda gave me (she always finds the best napkins!). I also made a set of 4 thank you cards.

I'll have a few of these note card sets at the Bazaar
Each set uses a different napkin as the theme and I made the little envelopes from paper bags. I was pleased with the outcome. I love small things in sets.(they are about 3.5x5)
There was great repost of a mailer tutorial on craft last week. I saw this after I made my envelopes (if I had seen it before It would have saved me some steps)

Those look so cool. How did you transfer the image from the napkin?

The napkin is glued (one layer) directly to the paper . I use watered down Aleene's tacky glue and I put a layer first on the paper then I carefully apply the thin napkin then I carefully brush the glue mix on top of the napkin. I use this technique for all my collaging and I change the thickness of the glue solution according to the thickness of the paper I am trying to collage.
