Hey friends, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft. Have you marbled anything before? It is so much fun! Marbled cards and matching envelopes make the perfect note or even gift! Read on to learn how to make marbled DIY stationery!
- Marabu Easy Marble Paint
- Smooth Cards and Envelopes
- Shallow Disposable Basin (That fits the size of the card.)
- Straight Pin or Toothpick
- Acetone and Cotton Pads for Clean-Up
- Paper Towels
Get the Easy Marble starter kit from Marabu and some extra paint colors too! I love the finished pieces with the most colors. The colors do not blend and mix, so any color you want on the DIY stationery must be applied individually. I wasn’t sure about the white, but even on white paper it is essential for some “empty” space. The full rainbow of colors is perfection when marbled. Even after doing all 25 cards and envelopes, I still had 3/4th’s of the paint left. Good thing too, it’s so addicting!
Now take the paper card and press into the water. The paint will adhere instantly. Use the pin to remove any unused paint in the water and then pull out the card. Set aside to dry. Wipe pin or toothpick off with paper towel before starting the next one.
Because it is so much fun–your work space will end up covered! Have a good place for the cards to sit as they dry. Clean up afterwards with acetone and cotton pad. Cleans easily off fingers and nails too.
