Hello everyone!! Today I’ve got a couple birthday cards to share with you to kick off our first Design Team Creative Challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas!! Birthday cards are always something one needs a lot of…at least I do!! Making multiples to have stashed away is always great especially when you are in a pinch. I’m pretty famous for looking at the calendar and having an “oh no” moment when I see it’s someones birthday and realize I don’t have a card made or set aside. Oopsies!!
So when it comes to making multiple cards, I like to keep things pretty simple. I especially love to utilize all the “white space” and make my main focus on a specific image. For these cards it happens to be this lovely mermaid from the Craftin Desert Diva’s Mermaid Lagoon set. Isn’t she just darling?! I then framed her out with some distress inks. I really wanted a big sentiment so paired a couple different ones together. Using two from the Mermaid Lagoon set and the word “celebrate” from the Kindness set. And last, I added a couple sequins from the Lilac set to finish my cards off.
If you are interested in seeing how I colored my mermaid, you can find that video HERE.
