Card & Matching Envelope – Faux Dip-Dye Watercolor

Happy Wednesday, all! Today I’m sharing a matching card and envelope. I painted both the watercolor element on the card, and the envelope, at the same time! I used Simon’s Foliage Circle die and Love You Greetings stamps to create the card, and the 1-2-3 Punch Board to create the watercolor envelope.

Unfortunately, I exact watercolor paper that I used for my envelope is currently unavailable. But I did find a similar alternative here.
