Wednesday's {Cards} No Sentiment

This weekend I created two quick cards. What made them quick is that they are nearly identical. That allowed me to quickly cut two of everything. The other thing I did was not use a sentiment on either card. One is being sent as a thank you card, and one is being sent as a condolence card. I can either add the individual sentiments to each card later or leave them blank. 
Pin It

For these cards, I used basic cardstock and the Graphic45 Secret Garden paper pack. I also used the Blue Fern Studios Vintage Locks chipboard and added a different lock to each card. I think the heart-shaped lock is very appropriate for the condolence card.

Papers: Paper Trey Ink cs, Graphic45 Secret Garden
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Vintage Locks (Tim Holtz picket fence crackle paint)
Embellishments: SU Fancy Fan embossing folder; Creative Cafe buttons; hand-dyed Hug Snug seam binding; May Arts twine; Petaloo Mantis Green mini floral; leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts; sewing machine


I think in the future, I may start making two of everything without sentiments so that I will have them ready to use for any purpose. I love that. Thanks for stopping by!

These are lovely. Do you pack them especially to mail, since they are three-dimensional? The flowers are so pretty; I'd hate for them to arrive flattened. Thanks-Jennifer in Ohio

Jennifer, I usually put them in a bubble envelope. I haven't heard of any arriving damaged. :) Blessings,

Beautiful cards, Patter! I love the heart shaped lock. I never add a sentiment when I make a card, at least until I know what I am using it for...works out well for me. And, if I don't have room left for a sentiment when I need the card, I stamp it inside! I hope this works nicely for you. Praying you and yours are doing wonderfully!
