When I need a card in a hurry I look through my stash of cards for ideas. Then I either:
- Recreate a card I’ve already made that is easy to make,
- Use the same layout but change the main image, or
- Change up the card a tab bit – like I did with this card.
Notice I didn’t say, “I look through my stash and use it.” I have the hardest time parting with my cards!
I have chosen two of my all time favorite butterfly stamp sets for this card: Butterfly Basics and Watercolor Wings. I also used Gorgeous Grunge again. In July I made a card very similar to this, but I have changed up the colors to achieve a more fall theme to the card; used a different small butterfly center and added a rhinestone to the butterfly; and added a strip of silver glimmer paper. The greeting is also different.
Here’s the card from my July post:
And here’s the card I made in a hurry!
As you can see the layout and use of stamps are basically the same. With changing just a few elements this card has its own look and feel to it.
Thanks for stopping by!
