Easter basket bloom

1104 Debra Burgin Easter basket bloomWe made this card last week at my Colonial House camp.  (Hi, ladies!)  I love stamping there!  My projects the last three months have been somewhat simple, perfect to re-create.  And so I’ve made several of this card; they’re in the mail to my far-away relatives.

It was fun to read the comments (posted and sent directly to me) on yesterday’s post about organizing your cards.  Margot mentioned keeping track of her sentiments in a Word document.  I rarely stamp inside of a card; sometimes that’s because I’m using a card that’s already made up, but usually I want to personalize the sentiment.

I actually use the same “verse” for all birthday recipients during the year.  (Yes, it’s named “2011 birthday landscape,” but I usually type in WordPerfect, not Word.)  I just add the person’s name.  I may print a 1/4 sheet with the inside sentiment, but if I have an idea for a card and know what colors I’ll be using, I print directly on the card stock.  (That’s what I do for my Christmas cards.)
