Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a simple autumn feeling card!

Today’s card was really easy to make. To start, I took a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper since it has more texture compared to a hot pressed version and paint a sort of splotchy and uneven background, creating a green, a red and yellowish areas. I flicked some colorful droplets on top along with white and gold ones to bring more interest to the pattern. I let the paper air dry and then die cut some leaves using Autumn Leaves Die Set.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from a kraft cardstock. I trimmed and positioned on top another slightly smaller panel made from the watercolor paper where I wrapped and tied a bow using a matching kraft twine. I arranged my watercolor leaves and glued them directly on the background. Finally I added a heat embossed sentiment from Heartfelt Essentials stamp set. If you have troubles with heat embossing, I highly recommend you to prep the paper with a generous coat of Powder Tool to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to your paper where you don’t want it. Then use VersaMark Clear Sticky ink since this ink stays wet for a while and allows to achieve a perfect impression. A few sequins finished this simple watercolor card.
