One of my most popular posts is this free watercolor doodle printable that I made into bookmarks. I thought for Mother’s Day this year, I would give you another use for the printable!
Of course, this greeting card would be great for so many occasions. So you might want to make a couple of them to have on hand.
I decided to use a dark green card as I liked how it worked with the leaves as a background for the trailing petals. I printed out the watercolor doodle on regular copy paper and punched out the petals using this Martha Stewart punch.
Using one of my hand carved rubber stamps and black archival ink, I added in the trailing leaves. To get the ghost leaves in the background, just continue to stamp with one load of ink and the pattern will get lighter each time. Since I used a custom made stamp, here are some options for you…stamp and stencil.
The next step was to use a hot glue gun (similar to this) and add the petals. I used just a dot of glue in the middle of each to hold them in place.
I glued some of the petals right over the edge and then trimmed them off when I was finished with the design.
The last step was to add white dimensional dots to the centers of the flowers and randomly over the card with Scribbles fabric paint.
This greeting card is pretty quick to put together and the watercolor printable makes a ton of petals, so don’t forget to make extras! You can find the printable here and more greeting cards ideas in the following posts:
