Happiness is a handmade card



Watercolour birthday card with My Favorite Things and Zig pens

Hi everyone, I'm over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a bright watercoloured birthday card using My Favorite Things and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

I started by cutting a panel from some watercolour card and using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a paint brush to add splodges of colour in yellow, green, blue and pink. When this was dry, I splattered over it with black ink. 

I then used My Favorite Things Happy Birthday to You Dienamics to die cut the sentiment from the panel and again from black card stock. I pieced these together as I wanted the lettering to be the same height as the panel and not recessed.

The panel was mounted to a slightly longer layer of black card stock and then onto a card base. 

Finally, I stamped, coloured with Zigs and die cut with the matching dies the balloon cluster from My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday and popped it onto the top right side of the card.

It's a simple card to make but I love how bright and cheerful it feels.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!



  1. Very brave to scatter in black! The black stripe lends something really nice at the left - kind of makes the design.

  2. Love all the bright colours and dramatic black letters Esther, another fab card from you mf ;) Viv xx

  3. Great design, I love the bold look of the sentiment combined with the soft, artsy colors! Very fun card!
