White Elephant Gift – Unsympathy Cards


Hi all! We’re having an office holiday party tomorrow night and I needed an inexpensive white elephant gift. For those that don’t know, white elephant gifts are usually silly gifts that you bring to a party and then play some sort of game where gifts are swapped and you never know what you’ll end up with. Anyhow, after brainstorming with the peeps in my little office (there are four of us), we came up with some “unsympathy cards.”

As I was designing them tonight, I couldn’t stop laughing. They’re so ridiculous. Thought that maybe some of you might get a kick out of them, too. NOTE: If you’re offended by any of these cards, please know that I mean no offense. The funny part is I would NEVER ever send these cards. Hopefully you’ll find the humor in them, too. :)

So, if you’d like to make some for yourself, here are the details…

When you purchase the Unsympathy Cards, you get 6 PDF files that you can print out on your own cardstock and cut in half. NOTE: These are designed for letter size cardstock (8-1/2 x 11):

Green Card 1
(perfect on Stampin’ Up! Sage Shadow cardstock)
FRONT: Sorry about your breakup.
INSIDE: It’s because you smell. No offense.

Green Card 2
(perfect on Stampin’ Up! Sage Shadow cardstock)
FRONT: So I heard you’re on drugs.
INSIDE: You should probably quit. I’m just sayin’.

Yellow Card 1
(perfect on Stampin’ Up! So Saffron cardstock)
FRONT: When God closes a door, He opens a window.
INSIDE: Except when you’re in prison. Tough break. See ya in 3 to 5.

Yellow Card 2

FRONT: We need to talk. It’s not you, it’s me.
INSIDE: Okay, okay. It’s you.
