Making Easy Friendship Cards

The night before I was to leave to go to the Snap 2013 Conference, I decided to make my roommates friendship cards. I needed something that was going to take up minimal space in the luggage, so a friendship card was the perfect answer. If you would like to read about the snap conference, click here for Snap Conference.

Making an easy friendship card

I started with some pretty scrapbook paper and cut a 12 x 12 sheet down to a 10 x 6, this will allow for 2 cards to be made from 1 sheet of scrapbook paper. I used Cameron, my Silhouette Cameo, to make and cut the butterfly for the front.

Planting seeds of friendship quote

I printed the “Here’s to planting seeds of friendship” on a clear label and placed on the inside of the card.

flower seed packets

I placed a flower seed packet on the inside of the card and there you have it, a sweet and simple gesture to make my roommates smile. I decided not to sign the card that way they could reuse the card and spread the smile to someone else special.

Butterfly greeting card

It is the simple little things that can mean a lot to someone. What have you done recently to place a smile on a friends face?
