Winter Birthday with Love

Hi! I’m here with a quick post of a 1-layer, ombré, Winter birthday card.slide001slide002slide001

I sponged on the woodgrain with a variety of blues and purples. I masked off half the card and sponged a medium blue onto the left side.


I stamped the dark purple tree in the foreground and then masked it off.


Then I stamped the bright blue tree and the dark blue tree.


I added the sentiment, the shadowy snow, the swing, and the heart.

  1. Aww I like the cutesy heart sitting on the swing and the brush under the trees as the land . Looks so casual but perfectly coordinated. I just got a good job and been working very hard (like 10~12 hours a day) . Therefore I use Instagram only since then and don’t really have time to update the blog. Do you have Instagram so that I can continue following you? Thank you and have a wonderful crafty weekend 🙂
