Watercolor Wonder Cards Switched Up

The Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards are absolutely amazing! They help you create beautiful projects in no time at all. Not only are the designs a work of art, but I love the weight of these sturdy, little cards. If you are like me, you might be inclined to just hoard these little beauties—but I assure you: these NEED to be shared with your loved ones!

The wheels started spinning as I thought about how I was going to stretch these a bit to make even more beautiful projects. Here are a few things I came up with:

I started with one of each design and cut them into three sizes (2" x 5", 1-1/2" x 5", and 3-1/8" x 4-7/8").

This will give me enough pieces to create at least 10 projects!

For this card I used the Backyard Basics Stamp Set and Backyard Basics Framelits Dies to make a simple thank you card. The 1-1/2" x 5" piece was perfect for stamping the bee!

For this one I used the Fringe Scissors to create a little grass for my Easter egg to hide in.

The Scallop Tag Topper Punch was excellent for this quick little creation. As I mentioned before, these cards are nice and sturdy, so they work perfectly for adorable bookmarks. Your book club will be so impressed!

Well, I am off to finish up creating a few more things with all the pieces I have left over! I hope you are inspired to get creative with these beautiful note cards, too!
