Hello and welcome!
So happy you’ve joined me today and so excited to start the release week from Craftin Desert Divas with a bright summer feeling card! Can you believe it’s already May? Yes, time flies by and summer colors pop somehow in my head. So I’m so enthusiastic to see a lot of wonderful, cute and fun summer products in the Craftin Desert Divas May release.
On the first day we are sneak peeking GARDEN BUGS stamp set filled with a lot of cute stamps and some great sentiments. This new set have a few fantastic small images as well and so I decided to stamp them in a random patter on a watercolor paper and made a super simple watercoloring adding bright summer colors.
While the watercolor piece was drying, I started working on my card base. I went for a 4 Bar size card this time since the images I used for watercoloring, seemed to be more balanced on a slightly smaller than usual A2 card. Ones scored it measures 4 7⁄8 by 3 1⁄2 inches. Then I prepared another slightly smaller piece out of a white card stock, die-cutting on it a scalloped circle from CDD Stitched In Circles die set to form a sort of a window that would frame my watercolor piece. The shape of this die seems to go so well with the cute images from the watercolor part because reminds me flowers.
At this point I added the sentiment from the same GARDEN BUGS stamp set and assembled everything gluing the watercolor panel directly to the card base and popping up on top the die-cut part with a foam tape.
That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! And please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration, amazing projects and sneak peeks from the Design Team, freebies and awesome giveaways!
