I love the Online Card Classes that are hosted by Kristine Werner and Jennifer McGuire. I have learned so much by taking these classes and feel that my cardmaking skills have increased by watching the techniques and instructions that are shared. Recently I have been participating in the Rainbow Maker class and have a few cards that I will be posting using techniques learned in the class.
The first is this birthday card using a watercolor background and a coverup die from Avery Elle. I love the way it turned out.
I began by watercoloring a rainbow background using my Mission Gold Watercolors on Canson XL 140# Watercolor Paper. Colors used are listed below.
While the watercolor background was drying a die cut three of Avery Elle’s Horizontal Stripes Coverup from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and adhered them together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive. This die also cuts the “hooray!” sentiment.
I adhered the coverup and sentiment to the watercolor background with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. A top folding A2 Cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image and die were adhered to the front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
I think this will make a great masculine birthday card, which are always a challenge to design and create.
