Neat & Tangled November Release: Day One

Hi crafty friends! Welcome to day one of the Neat & Tangled November release!


Today I am featuring one of the new products being revealed, which is the new Merry & Bright die. I love the fun, handpainted feel of this script die!


Because this die evoked such a handpainted feel for me, I thought it would be a great to frame it with some true hand painting of my own!


I went with simple images for the painting today so you can see how easy it is to replicate. And really, you don’t have to get super detailed with this hand painted art style… the more handmade it looks, the more charm it adds to the card design!




I have a video for you today, sharing all the details on how I created this card! If you enjoy, please give it a big thumbs up on YouTube and subscribe to my channel for more weekly inspiration!




Before you go…!
