Baby card + Video

Hello crafty friends!

Today I created a baby card for my cousin who just received their second baby boy. I love babies and a part of me really would like to have another one….. But then I remember pregnancy and delivery and all that stuff and I’m perfectly happy with the two we already have. 🙂

Anyway, this is todays card and video, I used a lot of stuff from Paper Smooches and I’m in love with those cute elephants and that word die. If you are interested in the process of making this card, you can always look at the video. And as always, thank you so much for watching, subscribing, commenting and all thumbs up on my videos, I appreciate it more than you know!

All the supplies are listed in the end of this post, thanks for stopping by and take care!

Baby card with watercolor

Hi!

I just bought some Peerless watercolors and I LOVE them! You can get really vibrant colors but today a went for a muted palette, and I only used two colors. My inspiration was pixel art, so that was what I wanted to replicate for my background. I cut the word die two times and adhered them slightly offset, and then adhered the wood stars.

I asked my husband if he liked this card, he is a honest critic and said he didn’t like it at all. He thought that the card would look better if the squares was exactly the same size, I tried to explain how watercolor works and that I wanted a loose effect but he still didn’t like it. I kind of like it so I thought I should share it with you anyway. What do you guys think? Would this card look better if the squares where exactly the same size?

As always, thanks for stopping by, see you soon and take care!
