Hello, hello! It’s good to have you back on the blog! Thank you for being here.
Today, I am sharing some stepped out photos of a handmade greeting card with a special message just for YOU!
The supplies I used are as follows:
Dina Wakley Media Acrylic (This stuff glides like “buttah”!!)
A cosmetic wedge
An old credit card
A blank greeting card
A ballpoint pen
Step 1: Dab some Dina Wakley Lime paint through the Halftone Dots Shadow stencil.
Step 2: Add some Dina Wakley Ruby paint through the Halftone Dots Midtone 2 stencil.
Step 3: Add Dina Wakley Sky paint through the Halftone Dots Shadow stencil.
Step 4: Add some Dina Wakley Lemon paint to your palette. Use up some of the extra Lime, Sky, and Ruby paint and create concentric circles on the front of your card.
Step 5: Scrape some Dina Wakley Lemon paint over the back of the card and on the front around your concentric circles.
Note: This Dina Wakley paint was such a pleasure to spread with a plastic card. You know how I wrote earlier that this stuff glides like “buttah”? Well, here’s where you can really get that joyful experience.
Step 6: Using Dye-Na-Flow liquid color, paint a word of your choice in the center of the concentric circles.
Keep playing with the Dye-Na-Flow to add lines, borders, and other embellishments.
Step 7: Here’s how things are looking so far after doing some doodling with black ballpoint pen:
And here’s the special message I want you to receive: Believe You Are Loved.

BACK OF CARD
Step 8: Mail your handmade greeting card to a friend or loved one who may need to hear this special message today!
Notes: I know I am not the best designer. My circles were not spaced correctly, my art is a little messy, and my lettering skills could use improvement. However, I don’t let this stop me from using my creativity and my whole heart. I encourage you to let go of any perfectionist ideas you hold about how your art should look. The recipient of your lovely card will not give two hoots about perfection. What matters most is what comes from your heart!
Many Blessings and Happy Creating to You!
