“Birthday Bonanza” Gift Enclosure Cards

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals.

Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team members. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

This month I was inspired to create some cute 3″ x 3″gift enclosure cards.  These quick and easy cards are perfect for a child’s birthday gift or to welcome a new baby.  It’s easy to create several cards and package them to give as a gift!  These would make a great gift for a co-worker, neighbor, or end of the year teacher’s gift!


Stamp Set –  Bonanza Buddies
Ink – Momento, Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry
Cardstock – Basic Black, Whisper White,
Accessories – Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards & Envelopes, Starburst Punch, Stitched Shapes Dies, Bonanza Dies, Nature’s Twine, Country Club Twine, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Below are close up views of each card.






As you can see in the photo below,  the little white Best Dressed Note Cards are adorable!  They have a watercolor wash printed on the front and are blank inside.  The envelopes have a printed pattern both on the front, and on the liner.

Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards & Envelopes

Add a package of Best Dressed Note Cards & Envelopes to your next order –  at only $8.00 for 24 cards, along with coordinating envelopes, they are a bargain.  Once you have them on hand, you will be ready to create a quick little card the next time you need one.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 8th, for our “Special Occasions” blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects for weddings, graduation, anniversary, baby, Mother’s/Father’s Day or any special occasion. Don’t miss the fun!

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!
