random cards

Felt like playing with watercolor lately, so made these two cards - one to my dear parents for their 31th birthday anniversary, and the other to my dear friend for his birthday.

The first one comes in an envelope:

The paper I used here was Prima Art Paper (some old collection) and the flair is from Everyday Vintage.

I painted the card on a Prima Paintable I've had in my stash for a while.

The number is a wood veneer piece from Ali Edwards December Daily 2014 kit...

...painted with gold acrylic paint (Studio Calico 24 karat).

I inserted a picture of all the four of us (the only one this year so far taken back in January - I should take more family portraits, really).

The greeting is under the picture but I forgot to take a photo of it.

There's a wood veneer heart on the back of the card painted gold, too.

And this is the birthday card (the same paintable, but a different background and shape and one of my favorite color combos):

This is the second time in my life I've made cards, so please don't judge too severely. Thank you so much for reading!
