Now that I’ve talked about making your cards “standard” I want to share my little cards. Some of these are 3″ x 3″ (finished size) which fit into little square envelopes sold by Stampin Up. Love these sweet little cards, they are quick, easy, and use up those leftovers from other projects. And some of these are smaller and are from scraps.
I have a habit that once I discover or get back into some technique I use it on everything. So I’ve been embossing everything I can. I also am totally in love with this bird stamp from the Always stamp set from Stampin Up. The entire set is very sweet and fun to use but I seem to mostly use the bird, I just love it.
So here are a few of my little birdie cards, some are blank while some have a sentiment stamped inside.
This second set of cards is from a recently retired set Much Appreciated which has a very nice variety of “thanks”.
Now what do I do with all of these sweet little cards? I thought of neighbors who are expecting or just gave birth to babies and I thought about making a mini book or album where photos could be added by the parents, but that’s a lot of work and not everyone appreciates this kind of thing. So then I thought: Wouldn’t a set of custom thank you cards be sweet? My one neighbor is expecting a girl and everything is chocolate brown and pink. Everything. I think she’d just love having custom thank you notes in her colors! And since my little cards have a clean, simple design, they are pretty universal and easy to make.
