Do you remember the last time you received a card in the mail? In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out to the person who receives it. Sending a card is a small gesture that shows just how much you care about that special someone in your life.
Today, October 1st, is World Card Making Day , celebrate by making and sending a handmade card to someone who could use a little recognition, love, or just a boost (which is anyone, really!).
So here is the card I am sending to all my readers – you do matter and I value you following along in my card crafting journey.
Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Very Vanilla Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Cajan Craze Card
Layer 2: 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 Early Expresso Card
Die Cut Embellishments : Cajan Craze and Delightful Dijon Card
Ink Colors: Early Expresso
The sentiment comes from the ‘Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! but you could use almost and sentiment to express your message.
All the embellishments were made using the Big Shot and the Flourish Thinlets Dies, as these are very detailed I recommend you use the Precision Base plate to cut and the Die Brush to remove the cut piece from the die. A couple of Dapper Denim Enamel shapes and my card is done.
