Default What kind of cards do you make?

I'm wondering...what kind of cards do you make most often? Is there a certain occasion that you end up making cards for more than others? What kind of cards are you giving the most?

No real reason why I posted...just wondering if there is a type of card that is made and given out most

If you select other...please post what kind of card!

That's a lovely idea. I love this site. I learn so much and have so many forehead-smacking moments when I think to myself "why didn't I think of that?"

I usually make a lot of *just because* cards for family, friends and moms in my children's playgroup. Birthdays are the next most commonly made by me.

Most cards that I make are not for a specific holiday. I keep them more generic. I like to give them for friendship, encouragement and to thank people.

i make reason/season/theme cards for my family and friends when needed...

i make a variety of cards to sell. some are obvious as to a reason/season/theme but most of them could be used for any reason.

i leave all my cards blank inside so the sender can add what ever sentiment they want to. when i am the sender sometimes i will stamp a sentiment inside or just had write what ever i want.

I make a ton of birthday cards. This year my goal was to give everyone I work with at school a card on their birthday. February is going to kill me because there is a birthday EVERYDAY! I've been a busy girl!

I make all kinds, but the ones I like to send to friends are funny ones. Just for fun, no special reason! I love the reactions from the recipients! Email is great, but nothing can beat a personal greeting in my book. I also save cards that I receive---they're fun to look at again, later!

I make them all! I have a display at work and am constantly selling cards and gifts. I make more money doing this than doing Workshops.

I checked birthday but then realized no, it is Christmas. I think in 2007 I made 55 to 60 Christmas cards. I don't make that many birthday! I am needing to work on "just because" cards to have on hand as I like to send those but never have one ready when I need one.

I try to make a lot of birthday cards because I send them to the residents of the assisted living facility where my mom lives.

Right now, I mostly make birthday cards.

I'm planning to get more involved in ChemoAngels again after a recent break, so then I'll be making more "thinking of you" kinds of cards.

As mentioned, I make a variety of cards that can be used for dfferent occasions. I put Thinking of You or somehting like that on lots, they can be used in a variety of ways. Then lots of Christmas, but that's seasonal.

I didn't actually vote because I didn't know what to put!

I make more of a variety of all occasion cards but since I made tons of Christmas cards for family and for the troops I had to vote for that. I prefer to make one of a kind cards for either birthdays or thank yous. kwim

I voted "other" because I make "general" cards that I can stamp any sentiment on the inside later. Sometimes I'll make specific cards for birthdays or something but usually just generic ones.

I usually need birthday, thank you, and friendship cards (which would include humorous, encouragement and get well type), so those are mostly the ones I make for personal use!

I guess I should answer my own poll!

I tend to make Thank You and Friendship cards most often. At the same time I make cards to sell, so they cover a varitey to types.

What a great ministry! I would not have thought about encouragement cards, but it's so needed! Everyone loves to have encouragment!

Except for Christmas cards, I make birthday cards the most. Especially since I have made so many new friends through SCS!

But I enjoy making general cards that have no purpose other than to brighten someone's day.

I have a little shop in work (ie a shoe box!) so I mostly make birthday and try to keep a stock of sympathy and thank you cards too ... and a smaller stock of baby, new home, etc. etc.
They certainly keep me busy anyway (and help to pay for new crafty goodies too!!)
I would also make a more general type of card with cats, dogs, etc on them and donate them to my local animal sanctuary

I picked other because I mostly make Thinking of you/Remembering you in prayer cards for my Church's card ministry. I do make Sympathy cards as well, and an assortment of other ones for my mother in law or for birthday presents.

Most of the time I don't put a sentiment on them so that I can adapt them for any occasion as I need them. Of course Christmas cards are a given, they'd be at the top of my list because you need so many. I didn't count those because I just make them during the season.

I voted other. While I do make all the options listed, I tend to make more "thinking of you" or just "hi" cards . . . cards that I can send anytime I want to.

About 90% of the cards I make are for any occasion. When I use them, I just add the appropriate words. So I voted "other."

My kids are 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 and both in pre-school. I swear we are at a birthday party every other weekend for one of their schoolmates! Thiss coming weekend is Chuck E Cheese ( which believe it or not, we have managed to have NEVER gone to yet!) So a lil girl bday card is on the agenda for today.

Most of the cards I make are generic. That way when I need a card quick, I can pull one out and stamp the sentiment I need.
