Congratulations Cards

Today I'm sharing some cards I made for my cousins wedding shower / wedding. My mom asked if I could make a last-minute card for her shower, and so I made three because I knew I'd need another one for her wedding, and one for Jon's sister's wedding this summer.

I pulled out these frame cutfiles from, my watercolours, some stamps and water colour paper. I tried to just go with it, and have fun with the watercolours. I didn't want to over think it too much, or try and be such a perfectionist.

For this first card, I used the frame with the hearts. I painted a square small enough to fit in the frame, with watercolours. Once it was dry I glued it to the back of the frame. Added dimension with foam squares. Stamped and cut out the congratulations sentiment, and used foam squares to adhere it over the crochet cotton. I hid the knot behind the sentiment. I love that it's clean and simple. This is the card we ended up using for her wedding shower at the start of February.

I painted a piece that would fit on the front of the card, and have a little white border around it. When it was dry, I stamped the cake and sentiment onto the card using this stamp set from Studio Calico. We decided we'd use this card to go with the gift for their wedding.

I never do anything with just yellow, so I made this card. I used some left over ribbon I had sitting on my desk, another frame from the cutfiles above, and another congratulations sentiment. This one is so bright and happy. It could be used for a baby, or a wedding. My plan is to use this one for Jon's sister's wedding. Her colours are blue and yellow.

Thanks for coming by to see these cards. Pull out your watercolours, or any paints you have, and make one card. If it's not fun, then put them away and do something else.

Have a great weekend!
