What happens when tasteful 1980’s inspiration meets amazing hand lettering? This birthday card! Give it a try, even if you’ve never hand lettered before! This really is a difficult project to mess up regardless of skill level. 🙂 Just make sure you wait long enough for the white ink to dry before you erase any guidelines!
Today, we’re putting on our flapper dresses and bringing our gold watercolor to life to create an art deco-inspired birthday card! You’ll need to get a little cozy with a ruler to make it, but the glamorous result is well worth the trouble!
I often find myself short on time but full of reasons to send cards — from thank yous to thinking of yous, I send out at least one card per week. If you’re anything like me, though, you probably don’t have hours to put in to making a beautiful DIY greeting card every time the need arises! For that reason, I’ve made us a bit of a “cheat”: the Printable Watercolor Cards Packet.
Today’s tutorial doesn’t require any special tools besides watercolor, a pencil, and a black pen. What it does require is a little bit of time and patience! If you have an hour or so, give this birthday card and envelope pair a try. You’ll absolutely love the artistic results!
With every year comes many opportunities to send birthday greetings! In this blog post, you’ll find a list of my six favorite birthday card tutorials on the TPK website. They are all artistic, original, and approachable for a range of artistic levels!
