I’m not sure about you guys, but I’ve got spring on the mind – and winter isn’t even over yet! While we wait for the snow to melt and the temperature to rise (at least, here in New York) I thought I’d make a set of colorful DIY watercolor note cards inspired by warm weather. There’s something so relaxing about the way the colors blend together on paper. Keep reading for five different ideas for handmade note cards!
Artsy DIY Watercolor Note Cards Supplies:
Trim the paper down to your desired size. My note cards measured 4″ x 6″.
Brushed Note Card:
Step One. Load the paint brush with your first color, adding just a little bit of water to keep the brush fairly dry. This will let the bristles bring out that “brushed” look.
Step One. Paint a few rows across the note card, leaving white space in between.
Chevron DIY Watercolor Note Card:
Step One. Paint a few large “V” shapes onto the entire width of the note card, leaving white space in between.
Corner DIY Watercolor Note Card:
Step One. Paint a few diagonal lines in two (or all four) corners. Again, leave white spaces in between.
Border DIY Watercolor Note Card
Step One. Paint straight lines along the perimeter of the note card.
