I Hope You Feel Appreciated…

Why have I been showcasing Thoughtful Branches so much over the past month?  Well, there’s a quick and easy answer – the bundle is absolutely amazing.  I’ve created sympathy cards, Halloween cards and beautiful thank you cards with some of the images (I’ll share links to those at the base of this post).  Today, I’m sharing a clean and simple card with one all my all-time favorite sentiment combinations…”I hope you feel appreciated…because you are.”  How sweet is that?!  Here’s my card:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Thoughtful Branches.  As I have said over and over, Thoughtful Branches is one of the most versatile bundles we’ve ever sold.  Stampin’ Up! is only offering it for a limited time, and I don’t want you to miss out.  Between now and August 31, you can purchase this stamp set and coordinating dies – and it’s worth every penny.  At the base of this post, I’ve included some samples of projects I’ve made.

  • The Inside of this card.  What’s sweeter than the sentiment on the front of this card – “I hope you feel appreciated…”?  The corresponding “…because you are.”  I just love it because it says what I hope my friends and customers and team members know.  Who doesn’t want to be appreciated?Thankful Branches, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Thank you card
  • Unexpected Color Combination.  The soft blue, vibrant pink and rich green don’t seem like a made-in-Heaven combination of colors, but they work perfectly together on this card.  It wasn’t until I started assembling the card that I noticed how wonderful they look together.  Do you agree?  Is it all the white space that helps these unlikely friends to work together so beautifully?  If you like this combination of colors, please feel free to save this: Stampin' Up!
