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.

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.

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?
