Forever Friends Kit Alternate Cards

Forever Friends Kit – Alternate Cards

The Forever Friends kit is part of the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection and is on sale this month – August 2023.  Below I’m going to share some cards that I made using the stamp set and additional supplies from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

After you complete the cards in the kit you still have the stamp set left – and the ink spot.  I decided to make some alternate cards using the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper and other supplies from the annual catalog.  I copied one card design from the kit and then create two more. In the video I’ll share with you how I split the Bordered Ribbon into 3 sections – and then used one on each card.

This was originally my Facebook Live from 7/17/2023 on my At Monika’s Place page. I’ve also uploaded it to YouTube for you to view there – see the link below.

National Christmas Card Day – Dec 9th

Today – December 9th – is National Christmas Card Day.  You would think that it would be something I already knew since I make cards but no.  This is the first time I’ve heard of it. 

CHRISTMAS CARD DAY – December 9th

Each year around this time, friends and families begin mailing their holiday cards. Christmas Card Day serves as a reminder to get your stamps, envelopes, and cards together so you can share your holiday cheer.  Are you making your cards this year?  I did not get cards made this year – well I got some made but not enough to send out to everyone.  Since we moved I’m working on a photo card instead.

These days everyone mails a variety of cards at Christmas time. In our modern world of social media some just post online or send emails and messages but cards are still around too.  There are handmade cards, store bought cards, photo cards, Christmas letters, post cards, business cards and even New Year’s cards. Just remember it’s a way to say “I’m thinking of you” no matter what form it comes in.

Here is a fun set of cards that I made with products from our Mini Catalog.  These were really fun with non-traditional colors.  Some of these products are on the LAST Chance List – so be sure to order them now before they sell out.

Happy Holidays to you!

♥ Monika
