With two kinds of embossing, it’s easy to make a quick card to cheer a friend! A simply stunning one!

And isn’t that what you want?

For your friend to feel extra special if she’s feeling a little down…or sick?

Not just because you took the time to make a handmade card. And not just because you popped your card into the mail so she had a surprise in her mailbox.

But because you thought of her while you were creating. And made a card you felt suits her perfectly.

Both of you will get the warm fuzzy feelings when you make this beautifully simple design.

A simple and elegant design with the Painted Posies embossing folder

When you have a pattern like the Painted Posies embossing folder, you want to emboss it so you have space at the top for your greeting.

And while you can always decide on a colour for the sentiment, take your card up a notch with some shiny gold embossing.
