Hot Tip Queen: Be Prepared for All Occasions

If you find yourself at a loss for the right card on a moment's notice, let the Hot Tip Queen Hot Tip Queen at Stamping Madlyhelp you be prepared for any occasion.

You know what it's like–suddenly you realize you need a Birthday Card, or a Sympathy, Get Well, or Thinking of You Card, and you don't have one.  Maybe it's a Graduation or Congratulations Card you need.   You frantically sit down to create one, and guess what?!  You have 20 minutes to get it ready to mail, and your inspiration didn't get out of bed with you this morning.  Oops.

Here's an easy way to always be prepared.  When you make a card you like, make two or three copies of it, but don't put a sentiment on the front.  That way you'll have a nice collection of All Occasions cards, that you can easily turn into a birthday card (or any other occasion) by adding the sentiment to the inside of the card

I have to remind Sage to make some masculine cards in addition to all the flowery-girlie stuff she does.  She doesn't have any kids she needs to be prepared for, but if you do, don't forget some children's cards. 

This is the Hot Tip Queen, happy to help you be prepared for all occasions.

    I find the masculine cards harder, too, because I like all the flowery/girlie stuff. But also because we dont have as many choices for masculine stamps. So when a good one comes along, like Daring Adventure, I try to make up a few cards to have on hand. With some cards, like the one fromSerene Silhouettes I showed on July 17th, all I had to do was use a knotted ribbon instead of a bow and it worked fine for a mans birthday card.
