Okay I admit it. I've been waiting to make this blog post. I've said before that cards I make are generally for a specific person, no hidden stash for me. Well, just because I made it for a specific person, sometimes I find with a little rework, it turns into a faster card for someone else before I get it mailed. Make sense? I call it "Necessity is the Mother of Reinvention".
Here is an example I hope will clear up my description. I made the following card with a certain someone in mind that was finishing up some military service and looking forward to getting home to little ones he left behind. The image was a freebie called Teddy's New Home and apparently is no longer available from Di's Digi Downloads.
However, I needed to send a quick baby card to Carri from Anything Goes on Paper Craft Planet. First grandchild and it was a boy. My eyes went to this card waiting to be mailed and soon I was peeling the image off the card base (for once I seemed to have mounted with regular tape, not heavy duty). A little presto- chango in background paper, added a few sentiment stamps and here is the end result that Carri received.
"Necessity is the Mother of Reinvention!" baby card. How did I do?
