Watercolor Halloween Cards by Beth Watson 3


It’s Halloween Card Week here on the Tombow USA blog and I am excited to experiment!

I created a trio of cards that I can’t wait to share with you now!

10-15 TOMBOW HALLOWEEN CARDS MAIN

 

Start out with A2 Kraft card blanks.  Measure and cut three squares from 90 lb. Watercolor paper 4″ by 4″.  Stamp images on watercolor paper with archival black ink.

Attach Halloween themed papers to the base of the cards with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, remember to roll the adhesive then snap it off to the side for a clean application.  Trim watercolor images and attach to card fronts with Tombow Foam Tape for dimension.

Attach fibers to card with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.  Thread string through buttons, tie in a knot or bow and attach to card fronts with Tombow Adhesive Dots.  These dots are great because they are colored, so you can see them on your work surface as well as on your project.  Add additional Halloween themed papers with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.
