Hi readers! Happy Saturday! This sweet little card by my sweet friend Kelly Alvarez made me smile, and I hope it does the same for you! I always love shaped cards (they’re so interesting!), and the watercolored background is really cool!
Read on below to find out just how she made it!
Hello, everyone! I needed to make a baby shower card, and I knew that the parents-to-be have decorated the nursery in grey, so I decided to start with some Let’s Polka paper and the Puffy Star Stackables to create a shaped card. I wanted to use Lawn Fawn’s new Hello Baby set, so I decided to create a scene on a star shaped watercolor paper die cut piece.
I used Distress Markers by scribbling them on my craft sheet, spraying some water, and then using my brush to swipe the color across the star to create a sky and pond. By adding a little purple to the sky, it makes it look like dusk which I thought was pretty and looked nice with the grey! I then swiped my clear Wink of Stella brush pen completely across the sky and the frog’s crown. It adds a subtle whimsy which I thought was cute for a baby card! I hope this card makes their day!
