Happy Birthday Card!

Today is my sister Ariel’s Birthday! She is across the Atlantic ocean, so I am unable to throw her a birthday party. So instead, in a post-modern spirit, I will make her a card on my blog.

Step 1: Gather materials that seems to fit the occasion and the person. Stamps, paper, colours etc. Spread it all over the table.
Step 2: Have lots of fun arranging and grouping materials until you are satisfied. Once you have a design, fill in the details. I added gold embossing powder to the flowers. Remember this important principle: Less is More!
Step 3: Improvise. I did not have a paper I liked for a background, so I got out my watercolours and painted one.

 

Step 4: Always step back and admire your creativity.
