Everyday greetings: LYB hello

Do you ever look at your stash of cards and realize that you don’t have enough everyday greetings? I have lots of cards specific to holidays, but not enough cards with simple sentiments like hello, thinking of you and get well soon.

Today I have a simple card with a simple sentiment. I love to make panel cards because they are so quick and easy and a good way to use scraps, yet they look pulled together.

  
Here I used patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle’s Hello Fall! line. The colors work so well together and are good for any time of year. Cheery without being cutesy. I made the three panels an even size and stitched them onto a card front. I usually stitch on card fronts rather than directly on the card itself so that the stitching doesn’t show through on the other side.
 
The label and alphas are from October Afternoon, the tree is My Little Shoebox and the birds are Jillibean Soup.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend.
