Hello There…and a Watercolored Thank You Card Too!



Hi - Jean Okimoto here - with a bright and easy card for you.  Gears and mechanical objects aren't often described as happy - but these gears look quite happy to me.  What do you think?

Bright, punched circles of cardstock are layered between a Gearworks Borders diecut from black and white cardstock.  It's a quick card that would be perfect for a birthday, thank you, or graduation card too.

  • Gearworks Border Die 98849
  • Mini Gears Die 98847
  • Urban Lowercase Alphabet Set 98874
  • Cardstock - Holly Berry, Pool, Taffy, Violet, Key Lime
  • Key Lime Notecard and Envelope

The new Gearworks Border Die is the featured here - and the matching Mini Gears Die pieces are either layered over the border or attached directly to the card.  

Here's another idea featuring a quick, easy - and always unique - watercolored background technique I love...

Brayer the water-spritzed Riviera inks onto slightly damp watercolor paper - tilt the paper if necessary to disperse any puddles of ink.  It's that easy!
