I’m back with another easy greeting card idea. I had some girlfriends over for Ladies Who Brunch and I used these cards as an invite for the fall-themed gathering. I wanted to do something special and nothing makes someone feel special like a handmade card in the mail!
To make these fall leaf watercolor cards, I used a white crayon to outline a leaf shape. For stencils, I used fallen leaves that I collected. I then brushed watercolors over the front of the card. That’s it!
I slipped a separate paper into the card with all the invite info on it and intentionally left the card blank. I encouraged all of the girls to re-use the card and pass it on. That way two people get the warm fuzzies of receiving real mail.
These watercolor cards can be adapted for any occasion with any shapes or messages. I’m already planning to write “Thank You” and “Just a Note” in fancy handwriting – I just need to develop some fancy handwriting first, of course! It would also be fun to a Christmas tree or a turkey. This is also a great project to do with kids.
