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.

For an extra personal touch, I crocheted a rose and adorned it with vintage-type gems from my stash. Happy World Cardmaking everyone!” Stacy Cohen

“Hello SCT Friends! I love to add different textures to cards besides paper! Ribbon, like the wide organza I used on my card is lightweight enough to be used under paper as a separate layer, and I added additional texture by sewing the layers together with a sewing machine!” ~ Meghann Andrew
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.
