If your stash of cards is quickly depleting, here is an example of using the same supplies to create three different cards. The only thing you need to remember is to not send all three cards to the same person. Though, that would be funny! I created a get well card, a birthday card and a thank you card using the So Sentimental Bundle. This Bundle includes the So Sentimental Stamp Set and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
The color scheme is Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.
The get well card is accented with two Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels that are colored with a Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.
The birthday card is accented with two Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins that are colored with a Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.
The thank you card is accented with two stars from a scrap of Soft Suede Cardstock and the Twinkle Builder Punch.
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2".
First Layer: Place the largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on a scrap of Soft Suede Cardstock. Put through a Die Cutting Machine and attach to the Card Base with SNAIL Adhesive.
Second Layer: Place the die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on a scrap of Crumb Cake Cardstock. Put through a Die Cutting Machine.
Third Layer: Place the die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock. Put through a Die Cutting Machine. Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink and attach to the Second Layer with SNAIL Adhesive.
The final steps are:
- Use about 4 3/4" of the 5/16" Braided Burlap Trim. Fray the two ends. Attach to the First Layer with SNAIL Adhesive.
- The Second and Third Layer can be attached to the First Layer with Dimensionals.
- Add the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels or Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins or stars using the Twinkle Builder Punch to the Third Layer.

Thank you for your continued support of my small business. You can shop 24/7 in my online store here.
These are such uncertain times. It is frightening because as time keeps ticking along, it has happened. No longer statistics; now I know people who have the Covid virus. That has certainly been a wake-up call. Dan and I still are healthy and are grateful for that each day.
My business has done a 360. No more in-person events, so I'm using Zoom and mailing out the event supplies. No more trips to the bank. I'm using mobile deposits, Venmo, Zelle and PayPal. Almost no trips to the post office. My postal scale arrived yesterday and I signed up for USPS Ship 'N Click Program. But what is incredible is Covid has forced me and others to be creative and learn a new way to do our businesses. How fortunate that technology is available for demonstrators' businesses to remain open.
Through the long days of Shelter in Place, papercrafting has been an important avenue for so many people to cope with fear, anxiety and boredom. I've heard story after story of people who are no longer hoarding their handmade cards. They have been mailing them to people they know or don't know and providing love and joy inside an envelope. Those acts of kindness are what fill my heart with happiness. I would love to hear your stories of sharing your love of papercrafting with others.
