Hello stampers. Today I felt the need to create a simple blog post. Sorry. No, I’m not sorry that it will be a short and simple one, sorry is the focus of the post. It is also the focal point of this amazing stamp set called Sorry for Everything. It is one of the few stamp sets that is only words. There is not even one image in this set!!
I love this set for the following reasons. 1. It is very versatile. It ranges from sorry I missed your birthday to sorry for the loss of your furry friend to sorry you’re not feeling well. 2. It tackles the more difficult issues in life in a straightforward manner. Sorry that things fell apart! I wish I could make everything better. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Sorry to see you go. And finally, forgive me?
As a Christian saying sorry (and asking and extending forgiveness) is essential to the faith. We were forgiven everything, so who are we to withhold forgiveness? I know, my thoughts are running deep today. Let’s break up these deep thoughts and take a look at the card that I made.
Never underestimate the power of a hand written hand made card. I personally know of relationships that have been forever changed and salvaged due to this simple act. If you do not yet have this set, I would highly recommend adding it to your stash. You will use it over and over. The big “sorry” makes it a wonderful focal point so that you can keep the rest of your card fairly simple. I used thick whisper white cardstock for the base, a night of navy layer 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″ and then a whisper white layer of 4″ by 5 1/4″ run through the Big Shot with the Detailed Floral thinlits (they used to be a bundle with the beautiful Floral Phrases set. Be sure to use the precision base plate as this is a detailed thinlet. If you forget to use this plate and use just the regular platform or the magnetic platform you will notice, trust me! Lots and lots of poking and it might not even cut through all the way. The precision base plate is worth every penny. Remember, it is saleabration time and that means an amazing deal on the starter kit. If you need some of these big ticket items, this is by far the best way to get them.

Are you interested in how I did the faux bow on my card? This ribbon trick is the most favourite trick I have ever shared, but maybe you are not yet familiar with it. Check out this video. I hope you have a super rest of your weekend!
