All Occasion Card


Hello! It's Tuesday! Hope it's a good day! :) Do you create all occasion cards, those without sentiments? I need to make more since they're perfect to keep on hand, available for any occasion that may pop up. Maybe you need a quick thank you, a sympathy card or just want to included a nice note with something?


This card was created with a mix of goodies that were begging to be used. ;) The chipboard flower, yellow and turquoise papers are from Echo Park's This & That collection. The background print is old My Mind's Eye paper and the Kraft card stock was stamped with VersaMark ink using a brand new Hampton Arts/Doodlebug stamp from the Sweet Backgrounds set.


I used several go-to tools, the cloud and butterfly die, corner rounder punch and scalloped border punch. These favorites get a lot of use! Whenever I'm considering a tool purchase, I ask myself, "How many projects do you think you can use this for?" Often the answer is not enough and so I don't purchase it, no matter how adorable it is! ;) I learned this lesson the hard way when I spent an entire week cleaning out and de-stashing my office. No more!


I really like how this mix of goodies turned out. I had a lot fun making a card just because.

Thanks so much for your visit! Hope you have a fabulous day!

Kathy :)

that turned out cute! I agree, I keep a few on hand that are generic and then maybe stamp on the front or inside to fit the occasion!

I do keep lots of blank / all occasion cards on hand. Sometimes I stamp a sentiment or use a sticker.

Your card is too cute. I love the mix and match of it and am still completely in awe of your handstitching.
