Vintage Birthday Card

This card was one of those projects that just evolved….

I had no idea where I was going with it, but I love how it ended up.

I felt like just splashing some watercolor on paper.

I wanted to get “wild and crazy” and just tear the paper instead of cutting it.

After the watercolor dried, I stamped Penny Black’s Letter Stamp on top.

I then heat embossed Hero Arts’ ferns on top of that.

Then I splattered…

and I sponged the edges…

and I wrapped with some SU linen thread and a wooden button.

For the inside, I painted some “leftover” watercolor paint onto the Hero Arts Fern stamp.Ā  I LOVE how it turned out.

Then, I used the Paper Smooches Happy Birthday Sentiment on top of it.

It turned into a birthday card for a very special brother-in-law.

I hope he feels the love and passion that went into each step of the creation.

Kinda like the love I feel for him. šŸ™‚

Happy Birthday Ron!Ā  May your birthday be as special as you!

Cheers & Hugs,

P.S.Ā  I am entering this card in the CanYouCaseIt Designer’s Choice Challenge this week (CYCI#66).
