I’ve been having some trouble making cards that I actually LIKE lately, so I was happy when this one turned out to be a keeper. I kept it simple and worked within my comfort zone: pretty watercolor and a bold sentiment.
My Gansai Tambi watercolors are so well loved at this point that I clearly need to think about re-ordering a few colors, especially this sea-green. I love it.
The sentiment is cobbled together using this happy die and a “birthday” sentiment that I grabbed from a studio calico stamp set (that doesn’t seem to be available anymore). But really, you could substitute from lots of different stamp sets here. I embossed it in white on slate gray card stock.
Slapped it onto a card base, added a few clear sequins here and there and I was finished. I really like how it turned out. Sometimes keeping it really simple can help to bring the mojo back (I hope)!
