Easy & Elegant card Design for Friendship, Thinking of You or Sympathy Cards

Hi friends! Today’s card project is one you can make up in batches to have on hand when you want a gentle thoughtful card to give. The design is simple and adaptable and if you don’t have the same supplies I have you can use the ink pads or watercolors you do have on hand.


You can see how to make this card as well as supply saving and storage tips in today’s video tutorial!

Storage tips:
I laminated the index cards that came with my stamp and slid them into cd/dvd sleeves. For the peg stamp cards I trimmed them small and laminated them with badge size laminating pouches because I had a bunch that came in a variety packs and I wanted to use them up:) You could also use clear packing tape to laminate the cards if you don’t have a laminator. I hope you found some of these tips useful and if you liked this project please consider sharing it using one of the nifty sharing button below! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  3. Quick, easy, elegant, my kind of card project! Thanks for the great storage ideas!


  4. VERY frugal …. every card looks completely different and creates a different mood! And all I’d need are the tree stamps, paper and watercolors. Wonderful idea!


  5. Great ideas! Thanks, Lindsay.


  6. Thanks again.I thinks your hints are always good. xx


  7. Great projects today Lindsay, love the use of your new tree stamps too. Good TOP TIP about the painter’s tape too. Bargain stores are great for all sorts of containers if the recycled ones at home do not make the match. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters. :O)


  8. I really like your cards, great for men, Christmas or sympathy. To tame my craft supplies (and it took a while) I scanned all dies and stamp sets. My dies are in plastic lidded boxes A to G in ziplock bags on magnetic sheets (as I use them I put a wee sticker on the pack with the box letter on. My stamps are in numbered boxes and wee stickers go on them as they are used, this way I can have a wee browse on my comp. get ideas and find the die set or stamp set right away. I can use my supplies and put them back in their box asap. This was a labour of love and yes I found a few repeats that I passed onto crafty friends.
    Sorry for the long message.
