Maggie shares, "It seems like I am always in need of a generic card to use for a birthday, thank you, or just to tell a friend I am thinking of them. And as a scrapbooker you would think that I would always use handmade cards... But sadly I admit that I typically end up using the store bought ones because I tend to not plan ahead in this area. Oops! So I decided that the best solution would be to plan ahead and start trying to make cards in advance, when I have the time. They are quick and easy to make and they are also a great way to use up your scraps after you have created a layout and all of your supplies are still out. I made both of these cards generic with a basic color scheme. I also left a spot on the front of both of them blank so that I could write in whatever message I need when it comes time to use the card. Now I am excited to say that the next two cards I send will be handmade and full of love! :)"
That's a great idea to make cards ahead of time and then add the sentiment later! Thanks for the tip Maggie - lovely cards!
