Today I’m sharing a handmade card for encouragement because…. Breast cancer sucks!  What else can I say? It seems like whichever direction I turn, I hear of another friend or family member who has breast cancer.  It’s everywhere and touches all of us in some way at some time.  But what an opportunity to brighten someone’s day with a hand-stamped card in their mailbox to encourage them along their journey.  The Ribbon of Courage stamp set is perfect for just that.  And, it’s NOT just for Breast Cancer.  Use the ribbons in all different colors to make encouragement cards or thinking of you cards to encourage anyone going through any type of cancer.  So, today, it’s all about encouraging YOU to encourage SOMEONE with a handmade card!

This stamp set works perfect for a window card.  I actually shared this over a year ago as a facebook live project.  The video recording turned out horrible, so I thought I would remake it so that you would have a good video to follow along to make this card with.
