One of the things I do at the beginning of every month is write my cards for the month – I have a birthday calendar that keeps track of all my birthdays and anniversaries so I spend an hour or two writing my cards and addressing them. Then I pop them in the mail each week, depending on when during the month the birthday/anniversary falls.
This month I realized I had several birthdays and other occasions that needed cards so I spent an afternoon making cards for a variety of occasions. I think I made a dozen cards over the course of the afternoon. I usually make multiples when I come up with a design I like. The designing is usually what takes the longest so why not, at least make 2 – sometimes I will make 4 of one design.
Unfortunately I needed a couple sympathy cards and a get well card as well. These are cards I generally don’t have on hand. So today I will share with you the sympathy card and over the next week or so, I will share the other cards I made that afternoon.
Today’s card uses the Field Flowers stamp set (WM 122760/CM 122762) and the So Sorry set (WM 126525/CM 126527). It’s a simple card – just one layer but the flowers are beautiful and it didn’t need much more than the stamping!
I will be back tomorrow with a get well card!
