Simple Liquid Watercolor + Die Cut Birthday Card

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials9 Comments

Today’s card project is all about these lovely liquid watercolors from Pinkfresh Studio. I’d been coveting them for a while, so I decided to order some and get started on a simple card project.

This card also features one of the very first word dies I created for my line at Simon Says Stamp, Yays. I realized the other day while texting some friends, I use “yay” as my response to just about everything. It’s a good all-purpose sentiment for sure!

The result is simple, but I think it’s a fun birthday card and it seems that is the type of card I’m most in need of.

Here’s a video showing you how I created the card:

    yay! Another winner. I am not surprised this looks good.

    I like this, I need to remember this for when (ha!) I get around to doing some watercolour and to use your meh die.

    Yay is upbeat. almost exclusively. I’m prone to saying woo – lower case, on it’s own, connotes big flippin’ deal. But you add the hoo for an actual, this is rather good.

    woo and indeed hoo

    proper enthusiasm would require capital letters and an exclamation mark. WooHoo!

    You can indicate moderate upbeatnessness with a singular woo by capitalisation and exclamation point. Woo!

    This is in the context of West of Scotland culture where “no’ bad” as an answer, indicates good and “not good” would indicate really very bad.

    Oh you are my hero. I love this card, I love your products, your classes, your wit, and of course I love you too. I’ve been enjoying watching you since the very early days of scrapbooking. And since you posted this on my birthday, I’m going to claim it as a virtual birthday card.
