Cards of Encouragement

I used a favorite sketch from Operation Write Home to make more Cards of Encouragement. Both sets of cards will include an uplifting message inside before being donated to a local oncology clinic for breast cancer patients. I used up the last of the Hope collection from Simple Stories. Then I found some cheerful yellow paper from an older My Mind's Eye paper collection.

Paper - My Mind's Eye - Breeze collection
Stamp - My Favorite Things
Ink - Reverse Confetti
Brads - from stash

Paper - Simple Stories - Hope collection
Stamp - Hero Arts
Ink - Ranger
Bling - Recollections

Thanks for visiting my blog today!


  1. Terrific card, Kristie. Thanks for showing it with the pink one you shared before. I adore the color choices on both. I'm also always fascinated with the big difference in looks one rounded corner can make. :) This is a great sketch, too! Have a great day. :)

    1. Thank you, Jeanne. The pink card is actually one I haven't shared before. But I used the same Simple Stories paper collection so it looks very similar. I think rounded corners adds a "softness" to a card. I try to remember to pull out my corner rounder every once in awhile. :)

  2. I love the gray and yellow--there is something very sophisticated about that combination. And also the gray and pink--veery soothing!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer. I have always liked the gray and yellow color combo as well. A couple years ago, those were the colors my family wore for our annual pictures. With a touch of black. So lovely together.
