Hello Dear

I need to send out more cards to people. A simple "hello" can go a long ways. And that's how I came up with this little beauty. 



A simple hello card for someone. I would be over the moon the receive one of these in the mail with a cute little note inside. It could make all the difference in my day. 

** Side Note: The Hello Stamp Set is available until supplies last. **


Very simple card to make. 

MEASUREMENTS:

Basic Black Card Stock: 4 x 8  scored at 4 inches
3 1/8 x 1 3/4
Whisper White Card Stock: 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 (2 for inside and outside)
3 x 1 5/8


Hope you enjoy!

Just For You Card

I'm all about CASEing (Copy And Share Everthing).
I love being able to come up with a project and allowing someone else to add their own touch to it. My favorite time to do this is when I am with my group of ladies that I craft with and we put together a card I created. I give them all the stuff to make my card, but I love watching what they do to add their own special touch to it. Sometimes I am blown away and secretly wish that I had thought of that. Other times I'm proud to know that my craft is rubbing off on them. 

And so I have created this card. 

This card is seen on the front of the Sale-a-bration Catalog. I really like this stamp set and wanted to do something creative with it. I didn't want it to be like other cards where the sentiment was perfectly centered and everything is measured perfectly. I wanted to just wing it. 

So I took from the card the same color concept and made it my own. This stamp set is free with a $50 order. I am truly impressed with it. I like the big stamps.
