Here's a Thinking of You card that I'm mailing to a friend who recently suffered a loss. One of the best thing about my crafting passion is that I can send something I've made with my own hands to express the love and support I cannot often put into words. This particular card was quick to come together using scraps I had on hand. I started with some black ink and a simple Thinking of You stamp from Close to My Heart.
Here's a side angle of the card. While this is not a particularly thick card I had added dimension where I could through the use of the Rose Embossing folder and the small pink pearl. You can easily put something like this together in under 5 minutes...easier and quicker than getting in your car and running out to buy a card. This may not be super fancy but it comes from the heart.
I also like to decorate the inside of my cards to carry the theme from the front. All I need to do now is write my note and pop it in the mail.
I also love the idea of having a coordinating interior to my envelope. I've come across a Sizzix die set on clearance at Hobby Lobby this weekend and I love how the designer paper pulls it all together. Now I can take my card and envelope value pack to a whole new level.
Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
