Wetlands, Better Together, Masculine Sympathy Card

It seems strange not making any more Christmas cards.  I wasn't sure what I was going to make today. I thought about using the "Cookie Cutter Christmas" set to make another baby card using the bear but I think I'm all Christmased out as far as cards go.  

SO, while I was surfing at Pinterest, I ran across this card. The original card reads "All the best" (translated).  I thought this looked like a good sympathy card.  I love how the "Serene Scenery" 6" x 6" paper was used.  I may leave that s pad of paper out.  There's still a lot of paper in my pack!  You can see the original card here.  

I love how this does look like water and sand.  And the birds from the "Wetlands" set go so well with it.  I have a feeling that this set may be retiring.  I'm going to miss the wording on it the most.  It had the most perfect shaped happy birthday and thinking of you wording.  It fit the oval dies and scalloped dies nicely.  But I'm working on getting the right fonts together to make my own wording on the computer so I can just print them out whenever I need.  Sometimes it's just easier that way, plus you get the exact words you want.

This was a SUPER easy card to make.  I stamped the birds and words using Basic Gray ink.  The words here are from the "Better Together" set.  A set I have not used much at all too, but I do have plans for it in the near future.  I keep saying that I have not used some sets much.  That just tells me that I purchase too many and don't get to play with them enough.  I will  be making wiser choices in the new Occasions Catalog coming out on January 4.  

This was a fun card to make and I LOVE how quickly this card went together.

Thank you ever so much for visiting today,
