Card Tutorial:

Creating Quick and Easy Card Backgrounds with a Gelli Plate + Gouache Paint

Hi Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so grateful you’re here. Today, I’m sharing how to make quick and easy backgrounds for your cards with a Gelli plate and gouache paint. This tutorial came together quite by accident after I found a mini Gelli plate in my studio during a cleanup. Intrigued, I decided to create a card on the fly and I’m loving the summer inspired colors.

 Are you enjoying the Hugs and Wildflowers stamp set? I’d love to see what you are creating with it.

Take a peek at the tutorial and let me know what you think!
