Simple Everyday Birthday Cards for the Emergency Box

You know the feeling? You suddenly remember someone's birthday at work or a family member and you need a card quick, but nothing too fancy, and the box of cards is running low. (Actually most of you are probably more organised than me and have digitised reminders beeping at you two weeks in advance so it the card actually arrives on time!) Anyway, I was having a play with some Craftwork Cards 'Card Candy' and thought I'd knock together a few of these simple cards for the box.  Here are a couple as an example:


I'm hoping to play with more Craftwork Cards bits and bobs at the craft group tonight so you might see a few more samples this week.  I really want to stock up the box and also I've promised my sister some cards as well...

Oh and I sent the first wedding card as chosen by Rochelle.  She will even get some blog candy for helping me with the decision...

Oh Hels, what a lovely idea. They look so fresh and spring-like. May have to 'borrow' this one K x

Well I 'borrowed' it from the craftwork cards blog so go ahead! It was actually quite therapeutic taking off all the backs of the foam dots - good 'I haven't got a brain today' crafting... I used a green glitter sakura for the stems but they had suggested glitter glue, but just not sure I'd be steady enough with it to get a neat line. x
