A Generic Card

Inspired by THIS pin on Pinterest, I made this card:



I liked it but after deliberating with some blogging buddies Elena and Debby, I revamped the card just a pinch...sometimes a card conference is necessary to bring out your best work.



Supplies:
Stamp: Petal Party by Penny  Black
Dies: Tag die by Penny Black
Other: versamark and white embossing powder

Ever have an occasion and look at your stash of cards and have NOT A SINGLE card that fits. I think to myself, for goodness sakes I make cards and I got NOTHIN'. So I decided a generic card stash was in order and came up with this one. Could be good for any occasion really. I like to do a self test:

Sympathy? Sure the kraft makes it somber
Birthday? Why not, it's fresh like another year about to start for the birthday recipient
Anniversary? You betcha, it's a LOVE-ly card!

If your card meets all the requirements, you have yourself a perfect GENERIC card!

  4. I really, really love this simple beauty. You know what though, I actually kinda love the first one the most. I just really love it's simple effortlessness. The second one is very striking, though, too.

  5. Definitely not picking sides here, but I came to comment to say I love the first one - in my reader I figured it was your tweaked card. I love that outline bloom off the edge. What I love most is that tag shape. That's cool.

  6. ah the twine and the bow...they look so captivating! Very beautiful card, Wida, just love the colors and the simple design :) I got to be honest though, I like the first one better, as I find the flower in harmony with the twine, whilst it the second one, they are kind of competing :) Still, both very awesome!

  19. I've fallen behind in my commenting . . . I saw this a while back and thought "how pretty". I love both versions but the first one appeals to my sense of minimalism.
