Are you ready for my *NEW* Mail It Monday for 2022? When COVID hit so many months ago, I started doing a weekly Make It Monday post. I’d share a color challenge, a sketch or other creative prompt. With the new year, I wanted to take it a step further!
If you’re like me, you likely make a lot of cards. Do you send all those cards? I know I don’t send nearly enough. And I want to change that! So my resolution this year is to send out at least one card each week to someone. I want to send more than just birthday cards. What about a ‘thinking of you’ or ‘glad we’re friends’ card? We all love receiving a bit of happy mail right? How fun is it to find a handmade card in your mailbox instead of a flyer or bill? It’s pretty great, right? So let’s help spread some happiness this year. Join me for my Mail It Mondays!
To start things off, a thank you card seemed appropriate. I have many more than just one of these to send so I kept the design fairly simple. But just because it’s simple doesn’t make it any less meaningful!
Here are the supplies I used to create my thank you card:
- Craft with Heart Cardmaking Stamp Set
- Espresso (Z2829)
- Kraft Paper (Z1375)
- French Vanilla Cardstock (X6046)
- Scarlet Cardstock (X6049)
- Cricut hearts
- banner die from Cupcake Card Thin Cuts (Z5035)
So why not use my simple Card Sketch and create your own handmade card. Then you can join me in a wonderful resolution of spreading happiness. It’ll be a great start to my Mail It Monday for 2022!
