One Card Wonder Wednesday December 18, 2019 - Waterfront Birthday Card


Thanks for joining me today!  Today's One Card Wonder Wednesday is a birthday card that I spotted on Pinterest.  I loved it so much I just had to recreate it.  The original posting was by  So, I thank the crafty scouter for the inspiration.

I haven't used the Waterfront stamp set as much as I would like.  It really does create beautiful landscape cards.  I think I am going to have to use it more.  I always forget how easy it is to make gorgeous cards with it until I use it and then it is like a new revelation every time, hahaha!  My fear is that I won't use any other stamp sets once I start using it because it is so beautiful.  

Here is the birthday card, what do you think?  I am always in need of masculine birthday cards and this one screams masculine to me.  It is clean, simple, and to the point.   I also used the A Wish for Everything Stamp Set and the Well Written dies for this card.

When you watch the video you will see how easily this image comes together.  And although my photo, for some reason, looks like I used Very Vanilla Card Stock, I used Whisper White.  My photography skills need some help.  lol.  Bear with me as I get better at this photography thing.  

Here is a close-up of the image and the sentiment.  I love how the stamp set makes it look like a watercolored card.  If you haven't bought this stamp set yet you really need to.  It is a keeper for sure.
Hope you enjoyed today's One Card Wonder Wednesday!
