What’s the Occasion?

One of the simple pleasures of life is pulling an envelope from your mailbox that has your name and address hand-written on it and seeing the name of a friend in the upper corner. There is so much excitement that you forget everything else in your hands and want to rip it open, or perhaps save it to savor later.

With the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, you have a whole world of opportunities to create a small mailable piece of art that might just carry a piece of your heart to a friend. Here are a few ideas gleaned from a recent card swap I participated in:

The next holiday may be Valentines, but hearts can be used for SO MUCH MORE than February 14th! Think of this card as one to send as an encouragement to a friend or an “I forgive you” when someone has made a sincere apology. The Painted with Love Suite has everything you need for greetings filled with love.  (Card by Laura Milligan)

Friends are the flowers of our lives~ let them know you appreciate them every day (not just on milestone occasions). The rich texture on this card is sumptuous! It’s created with products from the Petal Passion Suite that is fabulous for many other occasions such as weddings, congratulations and grateful giving. (Card by Terri Gaines)

Did you know 7 BILLION greeting cards sold in the United States each year and over half of them are birthday cards? Make your birthday greeting stand out with a sparkling creation like this gorgeous gem using the Sweet Soiree Suite. (Card by Megan Herst).
