World Card Making Day 2019!

Hello!

I didn’t know if I would have time to participate in World Card Making Day – but I did!  (it’s noon & I am still in my pajamas…priorities, right?)

I admit I watercolored the carnations last night (so it would dry). The background, sentiment, assembly were all done today.

This card is leaving with a batch of brownies in the morning.

Have a great day! Let’s all go get inspired!

Small Square Blue Daisy Birthday Card

I had this blue daisy die cut left from earlier this week. I embossed the flower detail onto the die cut, then added some color with Prismacolor pencils. It is a small square card (4.25 x 4.25 inches) because I wanted the flower to fill the front of the card.

Watercolored Pink Gerbera Daisy Birthday Card

This one is for personal use.

The recipient loves bright pink (me, too!), so I watercolored a bright orange and pink Gerbera daisy and die cut it. I inlaid a gold daisy into the blue card stock, then popped the watercolored daisy up on some clear Kool Tak foam (so you won’t see white edges when you peep in to see the gold layer underneath).

A sentiment and a few sequins, I am done.
