Hello You Watercolour Wash

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Hello You Watercolour Wash

Hands up who is the kind of crafter who sometimes needs a quick birthday card? *waves hands in the air* Yes, I’m one of those. I’m that kind of girl who remembers the birthdays well in advance. Far enough ahead to research and choose the perfect gift. That girl who’s out shopping for said gift, passes the card shop and thinks “pah, don’t need to go in there, I’ll make one at home” and then forgets when getting home…. Me.

So, I’ve put together a versatile, any birthday, any gender, any age card that’s quick but stylish.

I’ve got a little heat embossing, a watercolour wash and a smidgen of die cutting and the card is done.

With 50 colours in our line up as well as 5 embossing powder colours, there’s a combination for anyone and everyone. Even the ‘awkward’ people like my husband who’s favourite ‘colour’ is black….

Have a super day everyone!
