I must admit I’m not the best person at crafting, however I do like to try my hand at making my own things every so often as I find it to be quite therapeutic. Last summer I wrote a post on how I turned a torn pair of jeans into a cute pair of daisy-trim shorts, and since then I have enjoyed being more artsy and creating my own things! I was recently sent the ‘Watercolour Wishes’ card making kit from Stampin’ Up!, and I was super excited to try my hand at making my own greeting cards!
The Watercolour Wishes Card Making Kit comes packaged with everything you will need to create your own professional-looking greeting cards. This includes a variety of plain and patterned cards, envelopes, washi tape, luxury stickers, labels, decorative hearts and butterflies, sequins and a stamping set. I was so impressed by the contents of the package – the bits and pieces provided are of exceptional quality and will allow you to make 20 greeting cards. The package also contains a leaflet with inspiration for your cards, which I used when I made my own cards for this post.
I love sending and receiving cards from friends and family, however knowing that the other person took the time to actually make the card makes it even more special. The kit is perfect if you want to get crafty and make your own greeting cards to send to your loved ones, or even if you’re looking for the perfect present for that creative person in your life. It would also make a great Mother’s Day gift!
I decided to create a birthday card and a card which simply says ‘you’re amazing’, which I cannot wait to send out to my friends and family. However, you can also make cards to congratulate a loved one on their achievements, a thank you card or ‘just a note’ – the card kit allows to make a card for pretty much any occasion. What I also really loved about the kit is that the cards don’t necessarily take long to make – you can take as little or long as you like to create a professional looking card! The ones pictured in this post took around 10 minutes each to make.
