How to Make a Card for Any Occasion

How to Make a Card for Any Occasion.  If you are like me, the need for a handmade card arises at the worst time. Worst Time? Yes, you know when you are busy at work, with the kids, everyday life etc.  Yet, you don’t want to go without giving a card as you know the power there is in giving a card at a sad, happy, or lonely moment in someone’s life.  Join me today as I teach you how to make an easy, yet stunning card perfect for any occasion.

How to Make a Card for Any OccasionThe Unexpected

Do you love making cards for friends and family?  The truth is I do too but I don’t have a stash ready to go.  I hate the feeling of being unprepared! You know that moment when you realize you forgot someone’s birthday or anniversary.  Honestly, I feel horrible and when I do remember I am slammed busy with work, the kids, and everyday living.

How about when the unexpected happens?  A death or sickness comes and you have nothing ready to go.  Furthermore, your mojo is gone and you feel overwhelmed.   I have had that happen more times than I can count and I feel guilty.

Where Does Inspiration Come From?

This is a common question I am asked.  Inspiration can come from anything you like. It can be a color, image, smell, and locations to name a few.  There are times when inspiration just flows smoothly and other times when I get stuck.

The inspiration for this card came from Dazzling Diva Challenge #14 VIEW HERE.  This was a color challenge and so I focused on that to come up with this card.  I have to be honest with you as I struggled with this inspirational photo but I gave it a shot and I like the results.

Did you know our Dazzling Diva Challenges are open for all to participate?  I invite you to plug in, try the challenge, and submit your card.  The challenge closes every Tuesday at midnight so you still have time to participate.  I would love to be inspired by your beautiful creations.
