I really like making oriental themed noted cards. They can be used for almost any sentiment - thank you, sympathy, thinking of you, or just a note card. Below is a set of 5 note cards that I made for a gift.
All the cards are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and each one has a matching envelope.
Three of these card use polished stone paper that I made - I have an earlier post that gives you the instructions. I think the oriental stamped images look great with the paper colors. The embellishments are little different on each card - each one has a ribbon or cording in different colors and textures. I really had a lot fun making these cards. I hope you give this a try.
