Hello friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you! In celebration of the 2021 International Women’s Day Blog Hop, I have a duo of mini slimline cards to share, which would be perfect to send as encouragement cards to your women friends!
These bold and colorful cards feature our Simon exclusive So Beautiful stamp set! I wanted to no-line watercolor the floral images with Karin Markers, but we all know how time-consuming coloring can be. So to make the most of my time, I thought I would cut my colored image in half so that I can make two beautiful cards at once!
After trimming the colored florals in half, I also fussy cut around the outer edges. Peeking around the edge is a bright background that blended with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. I also added shimmery splatters with Prima Metallic Accents and Finetec Metallic Watercolors.
Inside the cards I continued the encouraging theme by adding sentiments from our Inside Friendship Messages set. This set has great, heartfelt messages that can be stamped on the inside for an extra-special touch.
Be sure to watch the video to see how I made these colorful cards!
