Sometimes it is a good idea to make some generic cards to have on hand so you are ready for almost any occasion. In this case, I have a butterly work of art card!
To make this generic card, I used Pool Party cardstock for the card base and layered it with So Saffron for an accent. The Whisper White layer is stamped, lightly, with various swaths of color with the Work of Art image. I used So Saffron, PInk Pirouette, Pool Party, and Calypso Coral ink. This provides a generic background but has color and interest in it. The gold foil butterfly I found in my scraps! It was die cut with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels on the butterfly for a little more accent. For the ribbon embellishment, I thought the Sale-A-Bration ribbon (retired) with the gold accents would be good for this card.
After you have some generic cards made, you will be ready to pull out a card for almost any occasion when you need one at the last minute. Add a greeting if you like or leave it without. Another way to add a greeting is to stamp a generic one, like “Just For You” or “Thinking of You”, something like that. Here’s an example of another card I made that could be considered generic and could be used for birthday, thinking of you, a written note, get well, congratulations, etc.
Look through the catalog and choose some stamp sets that could help you make generic cards. Flowers are probably always good but there are many others.
(Something is making my blog post push all the paragraphs together so I will have to find a way to fix this issue, just know I’m not trying to make my post difficult for you to read!)
