Do you struggle making cards for those special men in your lives? I think we all do. It’s so much easier to create cards with fun bright pinks and purples, lots of flowers, and all that pretty paper! But, don’t forget….MEN LIKE CARDS TOO! Especially when they need some “cheering up.” We often forget about these guys, and how we can make their day by sending a smile through the mail to let them know we are thinking of them!
The SENDING THOUGHTS stamp set in the Occasions Catalog is perfect for those special men (and women too!) It has great WORDS–something I always struggle with!
And then, making cards does not get any easier than when you combine the words with some awesome Designer Series Paper, otherwise known as DSP in the Stampin’ Up! world.
When I first saw this paper in the Occasions catalog, I only thought about using it with the stamps they show with it in the catalog. WRONG–don’t get stuck looking at just the products together that Stampin’ Up! puts together. This paper is AWESOME!
