Easy Thank You, Sympathy, or Friendship Card | Creative Juice Video

Have you ever had one of those “Now why didn’t I think of that before” moments? Today’s card had one of those moments for me. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the video.


I have a brand new stamp set, Dear Doily, that makes the most amazing and beautiful cards but for this card, I brought in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. The combination was gorgeous!

Let’s get going with this easy Thank You, Sympathy, or Friendship Card video…

And there is my “Why didn’t I think of this before?” moment. Isn’t the inside of this card gorgeous? Why I never thought about adding Designer Paper to the left side of a card is beyond me but I sure love how it looks!


I will be creating a lot of these cards to have on hand. We always seem to need a thank you, sympathy, or friendship card and this one can be done in so many different colors.
