When my husband Ed was first diagnosed with cancer back in May I told my girlfriend I needed to create some thank you cards to have on hand because people were doing things for us on a daily basis. She was so sweet and made me a stack of cards. Fortunately I ran out of them quickly because people are so generous. So recently I began making some of my own. I was going to use one of the one sheet wonders but really just wanted a bunch of the same cards but maybe using different patterned paper. I wanted something easy that I could do while sitting in the car or in my chair while watching my boys at football practice. I was able to find these gold shimmery card packs (of 20) for $1.00 at Michael's on clearance. I also bought the envelopes to match for $1.00. I could not pass those up. So I just used some sold card stock and patterned card stock that I had on hand to make a few varieties. I also bought a stamp set a few months ago (the same one my girlfriend used on the set she made me) because I wanted to be able to use punches so again I don't need my Cricut, but can instead punch the circles and stamp where I am. This makes it easy to craft at football, while I am with my husband at chemo, etc. Here are the cards I have made (and mailed-I need to get started on some more) so far.
Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day.
