In case of birthday emergency, download and print. | How About Orange

In case of birthday emergency, download and print.

Ever realize that you need a birthday card, but you can't get to the store in time? Here's a printable card and envelope I designed with the vines. I left a lot of white space so it won't use up an entire ink cartridge. If you want, you can download the card PDF and the envelope PDF and print them in the event of a birthday emergency.

I just happen to have one of those on Saturday, and I've been so caught up with the present, I forgot that it's customary to have a card as well. But now, my problem is solved! Thanks!

You are so(!) kind. And I LOVE your vines. Thank You! Here's hoping for an Etsy shop.

Also, I was wondering if you would mind sharing tips for your framed fabric project. I just ordered the Echino - Balance from SuperBuzzy in an attempt to make a Mothers Day gift. I'm not clever or crafty - but love clever and crafty people.

You are too kind - I always find myself without a card. I will use it in the future and pass on your blog to others in case they want to use it.

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing!

Liz said...

You're too cool... still hoping for the etsy store with the paintings for sale...

jean said...

That's a great idea! And so thoughtful too to come up with a design that doesn't use up a lot of ink, but is still clean and stylish. Thank you!

Judy said...

That is so cool and nice of you! I love it!

Carrie said...

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Not that I ever forget things like birthday cards, er...

jamie christine said...

jess, very pleasing! the other day I spent WAY too much time in the card aisle at Target, trying to figure out which outrageously expensive card I might be willing to reluctantly buy...what I mean is, I like cards but I can't keep every last one and I assume others are the same, so I hate to buy a card they're probably going to throw away sooner or later. Why not just give them the money? Or throw the money away? I digress. My point is, your card is beautiful, at hand, and my favorite price! Thank you!

Mindy said...

This is the absolutely cutest card and you are so sweet and generous to just give it to us all! I will definitely pay it forward by sending sweet wished with every card I print!!! Thank you!!!

I just used this for a card for my niece this morning. It's so pretty. I printed it on the white side of lightweight cardstock; it has blue inside, so i used some cute stickers I had.
The envelope has yellow inside. It's soon to leave for Akron, OH.

Thx SO much!

Julie, thanks for having a sister for me to play with. :) Well, I guess you didn't really have that much to do with it. I'll thank your parents next time I see them.

Georgie said...

Thank you for sharing, I have already used it once!

Miriam said...

Thanks for the envelope template. I am too darn lazy to make one for myself.
I love orange, good design and stylized botanicals, so this is the place for me.

Thanks so much for this jess.
I hope all goes well with your business.

Pauline said...

God, people have been having this problem for years and years but nobody's ever thought of a solution or if they have, done anything about it.
You are a lifesaver.
Wonder how you did your vines. Need some artistic tips.
