Hey everyone, hope you’re all doing well.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking – you’re saying to yourself “hey, haven’t you already showed us this card…twice…once in a post about making the card and once in an outgoing mail post.” Well, you’re right on that one but also wrong! Yes, I showed you that set of cards twice but this is a new set…they look the same but…well, they are the same design but this time I made a lot more.
I can’t help it. I just really liked the simple design of the watercolour blooms card and when my mom mentioned that her stash of cards was running low, making a bunch of these seemed perfect because it’s the kind of card you can use for so many situations so make a lot of the same card I did.
I made three different versions of it. One used a big ‘celebrate’ sentiment which is nice and generic, one says ‘celebrate your success’ which is a bit more specific but still open to interpretation on what the success is and the third doesn’t have any sentiment so it’s a free-for-all. There’s three versions and I made four of each card. Here’s what that ended up looking like:
It’s quite pretty seeing them all together like that. I also really like seeing how they’re all the same but also all different. The idea, layout and colours are the same but the nature of watercolours means each one is unique. I did make one card using more turquoise colours and I do love those colours but I think the sap green, hook green dark and purple lake colour combo is my favourite for this.
If you’re curious about the floral stamp (because it’s very pretty) you can see it down below – it’s a Docrafts Papermania stamp called Freshly Cut Flowers. The stamp is from the same range that the stickers I used a lot in my April and May bujo spreads came from.
I know this isn’t a new card design to show you but sometimes it’s nice to work on something you’ve done before and know works! If you’re a card maker, do you have any go-to cards you make or do you make a point of every card being different?
