Simply Soft Birthday Card

I saw this card by Kelly at "A Stamp Above" and I just HAD to make it. I'm trying to gather up a bunch of cards that I think would look great in the card holder I made a week ago.  I LOVE making those card holders as gifts and those receiving them love them too!  Well, who wouldn't love a 4 pack of cards to use when needed? I always add a birthday, get well, thinking of you and a thank you card in the pack.  It seems to cover the basics.  The thinking of you can also be used for a sympathy card and even a get well should you need another one!  Actually "thinking of you" covers a lot of things, doesn't it?

This layout may work for what I want to accomplish!  I used my favorite word set "Sincere Salutations."  I've had that set for years and will probably still use it long after it retires.  I guess word sets don't really matter if they are retired or not.  Not every one has all the sets that are used in cards and they just find what they have and what fits in the space provided and run with it!  That is what I do when I am making a card that someone else made and I don't have the same words or sometimes even the image.  I just take what I have that fits in the space and work with it!

For this card I used the "Simply Soft" hostess set and the Wisteria Wonder DP and card stock.  Though the camera makes it look like Perfect Plum.  I assure you it is not but that would be pretty too! 

This was a very easy card to make and that is why it is a candidate for the card holder. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
