Today I want to show you how you can take a card that someone else has made and make it your own.
We’ve all been there. You need a card but the inspiration well is dry. Staring at all your beautiful products just seems to make it worse. Where to begin?
This was the situation I faced this past Saturday. My husband had invited the families of our two oldest girls’ soccer teams over for an End of Season BBQ (in the pouring rain … but I digress). He’s coached our girls since Marley started playing 3 years ago and this year he is saying good bye to one particular player who he has coached for 2 years – first with Marley’s team and then with Paige’s team. Her mother has also been an integral part of the team, as Assistant Coach and General All-around Go-to Person, so he asked me to make a Thank You card for her. Two hours before the party started! Now, I am a BIG proponent of the Quick Card but pulling off 3 cards (one for her, one for her daughter and then another for the Team Manager of the other team) in that amount of time while still finishing the prep for the party was a bit much.
My fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators to the rescue! We regularly meet and swap cards so I just looked at my Swaps Board, picked one then went hunting for similar products. This one is by Maureen Pollock (I looked to see if she had a site you could check out but can’t find one – sorry.)
