While watching Hallmark channel one day, I say an advertisement that if you go to the Hallmark website they will send you 3 cards to send to others. When I received my cards, I immediately had an idea of how I could help brighten people’s moods a bit.
So to all my crafty friends out there, I challenge you: #SendCheer, #SpreadCheer. The concept is easy - make a card and send a spare for the recipient to send to someone.
I selected 10 people that I have sent cards to along with a spare card for them to send to someone else. I made it simple on myself and chose two layouts and made 10 of each. Below is the card that I wrote a short message to my recipients.
For the one for my recipient to send out themselves, I used the same technique for the tag to cover a piece of watercolor paper and create an entire background. Then I used the Close To My Heart Let’s Stay Home set to stamp a sentiment in the bottom right corner.
I used the same Have A Happy Day set for the inside sentiment also. This card looked pretty without the sequins and rhinestones but I wanted to add a little something to make it special.
I put these in the little cellophane bag and added a sticker to the back explaining my intentions.
So here is my challenge to you: if you are a crafty person, make cards and send a spare as I have done. If you are not crafty, next time you go to the store to get your groceries, pick up a card to brighten someone’s day.
