With summer comes LOTS of important holidays. My good friend Dustin's birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and my Mom's birthday. I try to make a special card for all of them (If I can get a free minute). This year I totally rocked it on the DIY cards using a big spread of crafty supplies: tissue paper, embroidery thread, watercolors & washi tape. Some of which I even got to deliver in person which was exciting since I don't always see my family on these special days.
Remember that DIY pouf tutorial I did a little bit ago? Well I thought it would go great inside a card as a tissue paper surprise!
The first card of its kind! (I think, maybe)
Embroidered paper card! You can get really detailed with it but it can be quite time consuming.
A simple design can be really great too!
This was the card for my mom's birthday present. I drew a feather with a felt tip pen, cut it out, and then used watercolors to give the feather some pizzaz!
I wrapped the present in some brown craft paper and secured it with neon green washi tape. Then I tied the card to the present with some hot pink rope.
And last but not least a television Father's day card I made with cardstock, felt tip pens, and washi tape. So simple but so fun! Definitely a winner.
