Note Card Holder

I am instructing a class today,where we will be making a note card holder and four note cards. I want these cards to have a clean and simple design. Because sometimes less is more!
All supplies used for this class are Stampin' Up!. This is the front of the note card holder. I ran my white card stock through the big shot in the polka dot embossing folder. I used the stamp set 'Bird on a Branch'. I really like this stamp set, don't ask why, it just calls me. I wanted the colors to be feminine and to compliment each other. But I really didn't want to use brown and pink. (I have had an overload of brown and pink.) I stamped the greeting and the branch in basic brown classic ink. I stamped the flowers in cameo coral. I stamped the bird in Bermuda bay. I used the same colors in the card stock. I used the polka dot Bermuda bay ribbon to help pull the polka dot theme throughout the project. I wanted a softer border, so I used the scallop edge punch on the larger mat.
The first three cards we are doing are posted on my blog under 'My 100th Post' and the valentines day themed card we are doing is posted on my blog under 'Sweet Little Valentine '.
Thank you for looking, and enjoy your weekend! I should be posting another card either later today or tomorrow!
