A few weeks ago, I promised to post some of the cards I'd been making, so here they come. The first one is one I just finished and sent this AM! The graphic is one I found on the Internet.
Here is the inside. I went online to look for birthday verses, then printed it out.
I made several of these sympathy cards. I found a package of the little ornaments at Michaels, and made lots of these to have on hand
This is a card I made from a card I previously received. I also made a coordinating envelope.
Another card made from one I received, with a not very interesting envelope! I may have to make a cuter one!
I used other parts of the front for the inside of my card.
Another one made from a card I previously received.
The inside verse of the same card used for the inside of this "new" card.
This is a card I made using card-stock die cuts that are by k&company. There were 88 pieces in the package, and 2 of all the large die cuts, one glittered, the other without. Then there are 30 or 40 small die cuts that can be added to a card if needed.
None of these cards have verses on the inside, as I'm waiting until I need to send it to choose a good verse for the recipient.

card #7 of diecuts.
card #8 from diecuts.
card # 10 from diecuts. The background on the card was from a small pad of papers, and so I used a little different paper for the envelope.
Last card for today. I'm working on some more of these cards, and I'm also going to make some with Thinking of You, as well as Get Well. I found all of these card verses on the Internet.
This flower is the largest die cut in the package. Thanks for looking!
Your cards are really nice. The Butterfly Get well is beautiful. TFS Liz
What a great bunch of cards. All are so lovely and well done. Thank you for sharing them. Maybe I can get myself into making cards again.
Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.
Very nice. I love your end die cut. Love the lacy look. And love the die cuts on the fronts too.
luv them great job
Your cards are so pretty
Wow, such a wonderful selection of hand made cards! I like all your designs, and the punched edges. I like the idea of recycling, and you did a great job of reusing your cards.
All of your cards are amazing! You have done a wonderful job!
Nice cards. I saw a similar package at one of the stores and thought about buying it,but didn't. Guess I will have to go back and see if I can find it. I was in the process of cutting up cards rec'd and dh came in and asked what I was doing. He had a fit when I told him I was recycling cards - he couldn't understand why I didn't want to keep all of them. Oh well, it was too late then!! TFS
Thanks to everyone for your kind words about the cards. And yes, I know that there are plenty of $ stores where we can buy a card for $.50, and I have no misconceptions that I am saving money making my own, but I enjoy it, and people seem to enjoy receiving them. I do use commercial cards sometimes, and that was my purpose in making this group of cards; to make enough to have on hand when needed. I don't always have time to drop everything and make a card, so making them ahead seems to be a good idea to me. As to the package of die cuts I used, they were 40% off, so I thought it was affordable. I also use images I find on the Internet, and then also use old cards. I'm working on another group now, and will post them at a later time.
Great job Karen....Can't wait to see your Christmas cards.....
7575EH, shhhhhh, don't tell anyone, but I bought Christmas cards last year after Christmas, and don't plan to make Christmas cards this year. But next year, I'll be back in there doing the Christmas thing!
Here's one more card I made
This shows all of the die cuts in the package I picked up.
I think the get well card is my favorite!
