Birthday Card

I’ve got a card share for you today. It’s the birthday card that I made for my husband. Who says masculine cards can’t have sequins? Lol!

This was my first time trying watercoloring which is real hot right now in card making. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink which I smeared on a craft sheet and spritzed with water. Then I smooshed a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor cardstock in it. I kept dipping it in until I got the look I was happy with. I allowed it to dry completely before adhering it to the card base. It was a bit warped so I made sure to use a good amount of adhesive on it.

The idea of tying the balloon strings to the words came from this card by Jennifer McGuire. I really love learning from her. She’s such a talent.

The process of decorating cards is much like anything else that I do. I’m kind of a spontaneous decorator. I have a vision in mind but I don’t always follow it. I just start adding stuff until I’m happy with the result.

Card supplies:

Tim Holtz Distress Ink in peacock feathers, picked raspberry & mustard seed
