Choose Happiness Thank You Card

A few weeks ago I confessed that I have a lot of projects piled up and ready to blog. I actually shared this card with my SE Calgary Card Club ladies in the month of August, but better late than never, right?!
Our August Card Club gathering was all about watercolouring, and at first glance you might wonder what I watercoloured here. Look a little closer at those leaves. To get this very informal look simply stamp your image and then quickly go over it with an Aqua Painter filled with water. The water will move the ink around and create a subtle watercolour look.
If you're looking for some fun ideas to add a little vintage flair to your projects, look no further. Here's a few tips for you:

  • cut thicker ribbons in half and fray all the edges 
  • rough up the edges of your cardstock with the blade of your scissors
  • Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla cardstock scream vintage
  • sponge edges of your cardstock for an aged look

It's also important to use stamp sets that aren't super modern if you're going vintage. The Choose Happiness stamp set I've used on this card is the perfect example of a vintage-vibe stamp set.
Do you want to join the fun of Card Club? I have a new group starting in October and I'd love to have you join me! Each time we meet we make 3 fun projects as well as practice a new technique you can add to your crafting knowledge. We meet once per month in my SE Calgary Studio. Click HERE for more details, and email to hold your spot! Want to check it out before you commit? Join me on Monday, October 19th or Tuesday, October 20th at 7pm. Please email me to rsvp.
