This is a super quick and easy watercolor card that is perfect for any friends or family members with upcoming birthdays!
This Father's Day, we're giving my Dad a couple of Tile products which will hopefully be gifts that keep on giving the gifts of his wallet and keys. I know a couple of people that also have these Tiles and it seems that they work really well. For the card, I'm drawing a simple watercolor banner with a few things representative of his interests surrounding it.
For Mother's Day this year, I did not have much time to create a card for my mom since it was the Sunday after AP exams and I was completely exhausted from them so I decided to go with simplicity and decided upon this clean and minimalistic look.
To be completely honest, this card was a bit rough. I am not as experienced with the old type calligraphy featured and my spacing was definitely not stellar. It is the first of many steps toward better calligraphy.
Welcome to birthday season! It's spring break now so everyone who had their birthdays in February after President's Day or have them in March is now having their parties and that means it's card season for me.
My friend had been trying to get a cat for her birthday and when the adorable cute cat tutorial below, I immediately knew I had to put it on her card. My cat is a bit different as I did it in watercolor and it isn't as good as the original, but I think it ended up really well and my friend liked it!
Recently, I had the opportunity to make a telegraph for my APUSH (AP US History for those not familiar) class and it was hard to find good tutorials online that were aesthetically pleasing and simple to make. Many tutorials didn't have simple and clear instructions or even instructions at all so I hope this tutorial is helpful! (If you have questions, leave comments below)
It's been a tradition for many years among my close friends and I to make each other homemade cards for our birthdays. Being a true craft lover, I've continuously attempted to take my cards to the next level through learning calligraphy and using more high quality papers. I had been making cards for my family and friends for as long as I could remember and it has always been a great way for me to express my thanks for being there for me.
