I can't believe the end of May is upon us. It is the end of the Occasions Mini catalog and also graduation season. I created this card for another great graduate using the Lucky Elephant stamp set. There are so many projects to create and never enough time. I had to sneak one more in ... After today this set will no longer be available for purchase however all of the other goodies on this card are brand new and will be available for purchase all year long!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge. Seriously, thank goodness it's Friday! Are you ready to get your crafting on? I sure am. I'm planning to make, make, make all weekend. I have a bunch of fun new toys I can't wait to play with. To help you get your craft on we've got a theme challenge for you over on the TGIF Challenges blog.
This weeks theme is sympathy or get well. This is an awesome challenge as it's always nice to have a sympathy or get well card on hand. As I sat down to create a card for this challenge I realized that I do not own very many sympathy or get well sentiments!!! I'd better work on fixing that! I used the phrase "a note for you" from the Eastern Palace stamp set and tried to make my card fairly generic. This phrase felt like it could lend toward a sympathy or get well card and allows me to customize the inside of the card to whatever occasion is needed.
The Eastern Palace suite of products will be in the new catalog and just happens to be available NOW for purchase.
The 'a note for you' stamp is a photopolymer stamp. This particular text is curved on a circle. I straightened the phrase out on the block for this card design. The cut medallions are available in the Eastern Palace framelits.
This second card is bright and cheery and is sure to uplift if spirits are down. The 'Thinking of You' phrase is super happy and makes me smile. I wouldn't classify the Eastern Place stamp set as a sympathy or a get well set but somehow it works! I really 'made do' this week with my sympathy cards and I hope I've inspired you to 'make do'. Thank for stopping by.
