MACM: monogram birthday card

Monday, October 20, 2014

Awhile back, I found these letter masks on clearance at Michaels. I’ve made a couple projects with them, one of which was a project for Logan. We spelled out his name and used watercolors to make the background. I was so in love with the result, that I used that project to inspire today’s Make a Card Monday card for my sweet friend Em.

I used a square of watercolor paper for the best result. I masked off a border around the letter E with some washi tape (goodness knows I have enough!). Then I went to town. I kept mine pretty organized, because that is how I roll! a kind of layers of yellow, orange and blue inside the border and an ombre green outside.

After I peeled off the masks, I used a roller stamp to put in a message and outlined everything in black pen. I like the slightly messy outlining with the watercolor! Then I added some enamel dots and a wood veneer heart (dyed with Distress Ink) to accent the border with a little 3D. So happy with the result! This is definitely a design I’ll be repeating in the future!
