I have made a few sets of these as gifts and I am so pleased with them! I think they're fun and classy. I try to make every card different and use a different paper for each. The patterned papers are the inside of business envelopes, recycled. The "S" is from the Letterpress Alphabet set. I used some grosgrain ribbon on these too. Black & white cardstock. This particular set is for a friend's 30th birthday today - Her last name is Smith.
