...for a happy birthday.
I made this card with a friend in mind, not saying who though just in case. I used memory box gerbera die , which I'm not too good at cutting so used the one I got wrong to make a water coloured panel, sort of like a stencil but not, just splodging paint around the outline die then moving to the next bit of paper. I quite like the effect and not only is it easy to do but quite satisfying too.
I cut an aperture in my base card freehand with a scalpel and ruler and layered the watercoloured panel behind it. I used a good die cut flower and semi overlaid it on the panel and the base card. I love white on white cards and a splash of colour just makes a change sometimes.
I wanted to neaten the edges of my aperture but wasn't sure how, I tried peel offs and that just didn't look right as it felt too solid and with the watercolours I felt the card had a certain softness. I decided to go with ribbon and added 2 strips and a hand tied bow all topped off with a lily of the valley birthday sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Memory box challenges - yellow
Just us girls - watercolour
Seize the birthday -anything birthday
