Some tips from Kim:
“I used a water brush to pick up the color from the lids of my Stampin’ Up! inkpads. If you’re not using Stampin’ Up! inkpads, press your inkpads against a non-stick craft mat to create a palette, then pick up the first color using just a bit of water to get the color flowing. Tap your brush against your finger to spatter it. Repeat with remaining colors. Tip: Use pastel colors for the spatters and bolder shades for the greeting, so it pops.”
Kim also has some tips for creating girl versions of these cute cards she made:
Alternate ideas for girl versions of the chevron series:
1. Melon-colored chevrons — follow the boy version almost exactly, just swap out the frog for a bunny and different colored chevrons.
2. Use Belinda’s Borders to create a background, following the design of the boy version.
The variety of backgrounds available makes it so easy to customize a card for the new baby! Belinda’s creates a whimsical “Dr. Seuss” vibe while the spatters and chevrons are super trendy. You really can’t go wrong.
Thank you so much for these awesome cards and tips, Kim!
