Card Stash Basics

Who else has a love hate relationship with the rain? I love it when I’m inside but dread it when I am driving or walking in it. Today is one of those days; the wind is howling, sky is roaring and the rain is pouring. While I sip on some cocoa it is relaxing to gaze out the window and take in the trees knowing that in a few short weeks the mass holidays will take place. It’s a time of mourning which I try not to focus on but it is okay to be sad at the fact that this year will undoubtedly be very different. Knowing that loved ones should stay away is a difficult thing to swallow.

Whether you have a spare moment or a day off to gaze out the window, take time to create a stash of cards to keep in your back pocket for a rainy day. Prior to the pandemic it was rare to receive letters via mail but I feel as if it is going back as we abide by the rules of our national leaders. This is why I feel it is the perfect time to start creating birthday, get well, and thank you cards while you are sitting trying to think of something to do. It may be hard to think this but one day you’ll wish you had the time you do now. The following is a basic guideline of what kind of cards to make in bulk. Remember to use an array of styles and colors to fit various personalities. You are not creating preplanned for the year cards but rather spur of the moment ones that would otherwise gravitate you towards the store.
