Something really wonderful happened this afternoon. These note cards were featured at the top of design*sponge’s best of diy 2011: notecards and stationery. Now, I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore design*sponge. Grace Bonney has such elegant and beautiful taste, yet uncovers intriguing and unusual finds. And, I love Kate Pruitt who edits all the diy goodies. To be on the top of any design*sponge list has me over the moon. It gives me a reason to celebrate!
I loved how they turned out.
But, in the end, they did not include them in their issue :(. That felt like a whopping blow. I think they wanted jewel tones all together, which is not really my thing. These things happen, and how you handle disappointment is just as vital as how you handle successes. Inevitably, they will both happen.

Though this is an old post on designing note-cards still I am getting amazed seeing such clean and beautiful works. No doubt on why they had been featured at the top of design sponge section!
