The default save location for Outlook is your Documents folder.  You can see if it is there.

If you saved the .vcf file then you can go to File > Open > Import File in Outlook and choose to import the VCard file.  Just follow the wizard.

No, they were not in there. I did find a solution however on my own. The recipient can save the attachment directly to the contacts folder by opening the email with the attachment and then opening Contacts in the navigation pane on the left. Then copy paste or drag the attachment into Contacts. Voila!
