Watercolor Sending Love
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. I have been making Valentine's Day cards, but I prefer to make cards that can be used year-round. I made this sending love card to have on hand in case I loved one who needs a little bit of support in the mail.

To make the card, I started with the smooth side of Memory Box watercolor paper and wet a strip on the paper with a large paintbrush and some clean water. I then touched different spots on the wet strip with some of my favorite colors of watercolor paint. The paint spread easily because the paper was pre-wet, and the color stayed in the areas I had wet with my paintbrush. Here is the finished look when it dried:


Next, I cut out a heart using one of my new dies. This is what it looked like:


The Pinpoint Burst Heart die adds all the little lines to the heart, which makes it a bit more interesting. To finish the card, I added my sentiment as well as some rhinestones:


I cut my card into a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square, but I will mail it in a standard A2 envelope so that it won't require any extra postage.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
