MFT Stamps: Watercolor Pop Up Birthday Card

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share this card with you today because I'm challenging myself this year to combine two of my favorite things - Card Making and Mixed Media! I know a lot of people do this but for some reason, I'm so compartmentalized in my creative thinking that I don't really tend to bring these two things together. So, in trying to do so more this is what I've come up with...and of course watercolor will be a major part of this journey as well. (Speaking of watercolor, PLEASE check out this amazing class by Dawn Woleslagle of WPlus9 that is seriously taking my water coloring to another level!) 

I was inspired today by the Color Challenge #37 at MFT Card Challenges:

These colors are SO pretty and as soon as I saw them I knew I would be using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 Watercolor Palette because there are colors in there that just fit this color scheme so perfectly. They are two of my favorite colors actually in the entire palette!

There is actually NO stamping on this card at all! *gasp* I know! But this Pop Up Birthday Die by My Favorite Things is just so cool and I created a similar card for my daughter's birthday recently that I knew I wanted to recreate it and show you how I used it. I honestly think it is the perfect way to accentuate the watercolor background. If you would like to see how this card came together, I have a process video available on my YouTube Channel for you:
