As World Watercoloring Month draws to a close, I wanted to take a look at a different way to watercolor. The Watercolor Shapes stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is an easy and mess free way to create colorful faux watercolor backgrounds. And since we are using a non-traditional way of watercoloring I decided to create a non-traditional Christmas card to celebrate Christmas in July!
The circles from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set add a fun pop of color in shades of red (Sweet Sorbet) and green (Parakeet Party) with a splash of blue (Pool Party) to keep it interesting. I’ve paired it with sentiments from the new Hope and Peace stamp set and added a few Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins to create a very non-traditional Christmas card. You can catch the tutorial on my Crafty Klock YouTube channel.
The measurements for this card are very simple. Card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; scored at 4 1/4″. First layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″ and second layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″. On the inside I added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White. Here’s a list of all the supplies I used to make this card.Product List
Go ahead and give this card a try. It’s easy and fun. Be sure to follow me on YouTube and sign up for my weekly emails for ideas, inspiration, and other news. When you sign up for my email list, I’ll send you my Guide to Sending Birthday Cards on time. Happy Stamping!
