I needed five quick birthday cards for this month so I pulled out my Gelli Plate and an array of my favorite DecoArt paints to make my own paper and make them quick and easy!
- Gelli Plate
- DecoArt Americana Paints.....lots of them!
- Baby Wipes
- Stencils (not necessary but makes it fun!) - Crafter's Workshop are my personal favorites!
Here are the five custom papers I made in less then five minutes.......
Here are the step-by-step photos for the various patterns.......
Here were just some of my favorite Decoart colors that I used:
The entire process was all about keeping it simple and making five birthday cards very fast. I cut 3 pieces of cardstock in half and folded to create my card base, added my custom backgrounds and then stamped/heat embossed "Happy Birthday" along with some simple doodling. Voila......DONE!
Plus a Bonus Thank you Card:
Hand painted custom cards are ready to go and all custom stamped from my studio.....
Does anyone see that I am putting my new doodles to use already?......loving this simple way to relax and have pretty cards ready to send out!
