Watercolor Spring Wreath Card

by May Park-

Happy Saturday! It’s 80 degree here in west LA, California. What’s your weather? I can feel Spring has arrived. Once I’m done with blogging, I’ll spend my afternoon at the pool. Can’t wait to make a splash! šŸ™‚


This morning I played around with watercolors and created this card for theĀ Virginia’s View challenge #1: watercoloring. You know how much I’ve been loving using watercolors on my projects lately. Such a beautiful trend!


I started with a piece of watercolor paper and used a paintbrush to add the colors to create my subtle background. After drying the paper,Ā I stamped the sentiment fromĀ Hero Arts Year Round SentimentsĀ in versamark and then heat embossed it usingĀ Ranger gold embossing powder. Next, I adhered the watercolored panel onto the card base fromĀ Sweet BlushĀ cardstock by Papertrey Ink.


I created the watercolored wreath using Rustic Wreath dieĀ from Papertrey Ink. I die cut it three times to add some dimension to my card. I love how it turned out and really love the watercolors on that wreath and background. They just blended so well together and made the card look so bright and springy.Ā I am quite happy with the end result. What do you think? By the way, I’m linking this up to CAS on Sunday #28.


FYI, these are the supplies I used to create my card:Cuttlebug cutting machine was not pictured. That’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

    So pretty and soft. Don’t you love this wreath? It’s so simple and versatile. You can see my card that used the wreath and distress ink “watercolor” here:
    I had so much fun with that die for my holiday thank you cards this year! SO jealous to hear you are jumping in a pool in sunny LA! And I thought 60 degree Seattle with its shining sun and bright blue water was amazing yesterday! xo
