12:00 pm World Card Making Day – Thinking of YOU!

12:00 pm World Card Making Day – Thinking of YOU!

We are “thinking about you” all day and hope you’re getting your card making groove on! Or if you’re not able to be crafting today, we sure hope today’s cards will inspire you the moment you can get in your craft space.

I think we all love those little reminders that someone has us on their mind and this hour our team has created some sweet “thinking of you” cards they’re excited to share…

“Because of the prevalence of text, email and Facebook messages, it’s rare to get paper cards these days.  So when I do receive a physical card from someone it’s very special.  And it’s ULTRA special when it’s a handmade card.  When I make cards for other people, I like to add an additional handmade touch.  My favorite cardmaking technique is stitching, whether it be hand, machine or even faux stitching.  I always stitch on pre-cut pieces of cardstock and/or paper first before attaching them to the card front so that the back-stitching is hidden behind the  paper panels and can’t be seen when you open the card.

Thinking of you card by Paige Evans

We love this great tip by Paige Evans. Tip: Let the sentiment be the star of the show and die cut it (using one of today’s free cut files!) from your favorite patterned paper. To add extra texture and love, hand stitch around the phrase using a coordinating color of thread.

    My friend Heather, works many hours outside of her home.
    She has a beautiful heart.
    So you can see she has not had the chance to update her blog. So I am thinking that a shout out to her would make her day.

    So many pretty cards! A great thing since so many people seem to need some cheering up and know someone is there for them. I love sending along a thinking of you card with a note to someone who is going through some issues.
    Right now my sister in law, Joanne, needs a little extra hug and some cheering up. She is always doing so much for others and cares for so many people but right now she is running on fumes and could use a little extra TLC herself. I have been helping her learn how to make cards and scrapbook and it is one things that always helps her destress and forget her problems for a little while.

    A Thinking of You card is so very lovely to send and to receive. My friend Hope is battling the blues after surgery and an extended time off work. She sure could use a pick me up.

    There is just something about texture and dimension that makes a card extra special. My daughter doesn’t need a pick-me-up, but she would love to receive a special gift.

    These are some WOW cards that you and your team have been sharing today! I am getting lots of tips, ideas and inspiration! Thank you! I think my friend Fiki in Croatia could use a pick-me-up!

    My crafting bestie needs a pick-me-up. She is going to be devastated when I tell her my hubby just got transferred out of state. We are always roommates at our stamp/scrap camp twice a year and this next one in 2 weeks will be my last. 🙁

    I’m loving all the inspiration today! I don’t have a friend that makes cards, but I would love to send a little something to a card maker that’s been affected by the recent hurricanes.

    My friend April could use a pick me up.. Some people just have the domino effect when something bad happens. Sadly we think Alzheimers has infected her family. She could sure use a pick me up!

    Great idea for using corrugated cardboard. Maybe my Christmas cards this year will have some on them. My neighbor and friend recently lost her Father. She could use a pick-me-up.

    I have a niece who is a school teacher. She fell down some steps at school on her FIRST day this year.

    I love the idea of adding fibers and fabric to cards! So pretty! I know I have a sewing machine some place in my house. I would like to play with this technique. I grew up during the age where we wrote letters to our grandparents, mailed personal invitations and never ever forgot to send a thank you note. I couldn’t agree more with the importance of sending something in the mail to brighten someone’s day. My friend could use something like that in her life now. She travels for work and is having a challenging time keeping the pace required. How nice of you to include a little something something for someone important to us. I think I’m going to make a card for her myself. And send it in the mail instead of hand delivering it.

    Thinking of You cards are some of my favourites to make – and those shared here offer such lovely inspiration! Today, as I do everyday, I’m thinking of my mom who has been living on her own since my dad’s passing two years ago. She’s so strong (and an avid fan of my cards, too *grin*! Looking forward to seeing her next weekend and, hopefully, bringing her back to our place for a week (or longer!). Thank you for the smiles and ideas!

    I admire Paige’s ability to sew on the card.
    I have never tried that – I can see myself tearing it
    about half-way through. I’m not too
    confident in my abilities.
    Great cards.
    I would give a gift to my granddaughter – she
    is just starting out in paper crafting and could
    use supplies.
    thanks for sharing.

    I love the stitching. This combines two of my favorite hobbies and it looks so beautiful too! I would send a pick me up to my DIL who is a busy mom thousands of miles away from home.

    Great tip on making the sentiment the star & the stitching really accents it. My SIL could use the pick me up especially since she’s just starting out in crafting.

    There are a couple of people who I know are going through some tough times due to cancer in the family. One’s son is fighting leukaemia and another friend’s father has cancer and is in India suffering through chemotherapy. Despite these setbacks they are both putting up a brave front. Although they are not crafters, a card from anyone would make them feel better.

    Oh, please, please, please, my cousin could use a serious pick me up!! She lives in Colorado and is one of 4 people in her town diagnosed with West Nile Virus, plus she has meningitis because of it. The neuroinvasive kind that attacks the nervous system. I think she’s 3 weeks in and still wiped out but starting to get a little stronger. Friends and family have rallied around, trying to help with meals and care of the kids. Everyone knows someone who could use a little sunshine in their day but my cousin Kimberly, REALLY could use a snail mail hug. She has weeks to months of recovery ahead of her. Not to be maudlin, but one of the folks in her community has already died of this. It’s serious business. Thanks so much for your consideration and thanks for the amazing inspiration from the team. I love every one of these projects!
