Sometimes I need to rustle up a quick card to send off to a friend - I must admit that I'm one of those people that remembers birthdays and special occasions at the last minute. Other times I'll send a little something for those occasions that can't be planned, like when I hear that someone has an interview for a new job.
This cute little card I made over the weekend needed to be sweet, but swift, so I delved into my stamps and settled on the two that I use the most - Lawn Fawn's Blissful Botanicals and Sophie's Sentiments.
I love using a background stamp in an ink that's only subtly different from my cardstock - it reminds me a little of embossing. Then just a little bit of black ink and a co-ordinating flower to finish off. It might not be a work of art, but is does remind someone that you're thinking of them. And sometimes, that's all you need!
