Reinkers and Birthday Wishes
by Janet Katz
This birthday card was simple to make for 2 reasons. First, the background was pre-made. Months ago I had played around with some reinkers on watercolor paper. I ended up with this vivid, almost symmetrical background.
Second, Poppystamps Birthday Wishes Moonlight Script die set is the ideal size and shape on any card to make it look great. I trimmed my watercolor to 4" x 5.25" and matted it onto a cardbase that matched the turquoise shade in the watercolor. Next, I die cut the script saying from the same turquoise cardstock. Then, I cut the shadow from watercolor cardstock to match the background.
I adhered these together and used foam adhesive to pop the sentiment off the watercolor background. Finally, I added some Fairy Jewels in matching colors.
That's it. I love sitting and making card backgrounds, because when it comes time to put together a card, most of the work is already done. Give it a try.
