DIY Easy Valentine’s Day Card with Minimal Supplies #1 (2017 Miniseries)

Hello, all! Today’s card idea and video is a DIY Valentine’s Day card using minimal supplies. In fact, this is the first of three videos like this that I have planned. There will be two more DIY Valentine’s Day cards in the coming weeks.

You’ll want to use watercolor paper to create this card. I’ve really been liking Canson XL watercolor paper and it’s an inexpensive paper that can sometimes be found in stores like Walmart. If you can’t get a hold of some watercolor paper, try to use the thickest cardstock or paper that you can.

I masked off the four squares using blue painter’s tape, and then watercolored using washable watercolor paints from Crayola. To finish off the card, I drew a gold heart using a Pilot paint marker in gold.
