Birthday Blueprint Card

Hello friends! If you're like me there is always a birthday to celebrate. So here are some quick and easy cards to make for that special someone. 

The cards are colored with Distress Markers and then accented with Distress Glitter! I always love to add Distress Glitter it adds the perfect sugar coating. 

Stamp the Mini Birthday Blueprint images onto Watercolor Cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink.

Color images with Distress Markers and blend with a Water Brush. 

Apply Glossy Accents where you want the Distress Glitter. 

Add Distress Glitter and shake off excess. 

Love the chunky look of the Distress Glitter.

Mount the blueprint images onto a matching color and use foam tape to adhere to a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" card. Tie Striped Paper Sting to the top of the card with a bow. 

Thanks for stopping in!

  12. This is gorgeous! I am pretty sure a mastermind is behind these cards. I don’t know why such thoughts never came into my head. It looks beautiful and is also unique in its own way. Why don’t you display your work somewhere? There is an exhibition happening in one of the event locations next month. Try that.
