And Create Your Personalised Message On An Occasion Card

 Sometimes you cannot find the card with the message on it, you might want to say something personal or simple and cut to the chase..'I love you' or 'you are great, you deserve the promotion!'I wanted to congratulate a friend on the great news that baby number two was on the way. The thing is that you don't get cards with that on..

So, I got out my paints and painted what I wanted to say on two pieces of paper I stitched together on my sewing machine. When I had painted my words, I highlighted these with gold paint and soft "B grade pencil.

I took a colour that I loved and would stand out easily such as red. To get you started use a colour such as blue, green or red as it will look good on cream paper. Yellows and pastels will not have the same impact due to the colours being softer.

My friend texted me today to say that she loved it. Why not have a go and let me know how you got on?


  1. Its gorgeous! What a fabulous idea :)

  2. Thanks Kate, I like the idea that card craft can be simple and sometimes we don't need lots of papers, glitter and punches to say what we really want to say on a card.
