No-line watercolor and monochrome theme Valentine’s day cards

by Swati Gupta

Hi Guys,

This is Swati Gupta here.

If you don’t like traditional Valentine’s gifts and feel they are a little over then you have landed the right page. Today I have 2 card tutorial for you guys where the cards are a little different from all the traditional Valentine’s day cards.

Card 1: No-line watercolor card

  • Create a card base using Paperum – Tacha Brown Cardstock. I have created an oval shape card but you can create any shape.
  • Cut a smaller piece of watercolor paper in the same shape as your card base.
  • Using a light color water-friendly ink, stamp the owl image from the Mudra Stamp – Owl My Love stamp set.
  • Then I have created the sky using a blue watercolor but only around the image.
  • Then color the image with your choice of watercolors or watercolor brush markers.
  • After everything is dry, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Mai Dye Inkpad – Jet Black.
  • Then I embellished it with some Nuvo drops. You can use sequins also.
  • After the card front was ready I just stuck it to the card base and our card is ready. 🙂

Card 2: Monochrome theme card

  • Create a card base using a color card stock. I have used Paperum – Peppa Pink to create a rectangle card base.
  • Using the same cardstock I created a card front that is a little smaller than the card base size.
  • Using the Mudra Stencil – Wavy Heart Pattern I Ink blended some darker ink color on the card to make a contrasting background.
  • Then I used the images from the Mudra Stamp – Love jar stamp set and stamped them using waterproof ink on watercolor paper.
  • Then I colored the images using some watercolors and fussy cut them.
  • Using the sentiment from the same stamp set I white heat embossed it on a separate piece of the same cardstock.
  • Then I stuck all the images and the sentiment together on the card front.
  • Then I glued the card front on the card base and our card is ready.
