Friendship Card with Watercolor Background

Hi All,

I’m back with another card featuring a large background stamp. This time I wanted to work with watercolors and draw focus to the smaller elements of the background. The most important element in making a card like this is to use a quality piece of watercolor paper. Since there’s so much water added to the card, you really need a material that will hold up and not break apart.

Here’s a video on how the card was made.

I actually made this card a few times. When using a thick black border around the edges of the element, the card looks more like an actual book. I loved how this design can truly be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
