Water Colored Fruit Card Set

It's time to be thinking about back to school and I've got a great way to let your kids teachers know how much you appreciate them throughout the year.  Here's a set of water colored note cards that can be used any time to share your appreciation.  And they're not just for teachers!  

Here's a snapshot of the products I used today:
There's a big sale going on for the month of August on all white and ivory colored cardstocks at Cut Cardstock.  For today's projects I'm using Cougar 80lb Natural A-2 Folded Note Cards.  These come all cut to size, scored and ready to use.  What a great time saver and so handy to have on hand when you need to whip up a card in a jiffy!  
I started by cutting all the fruits out of water colored cardstock and water colored them using Gansai Tambi Water Colors.  I used Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to assemble the fruits.

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles to cut a printed paper panel and a smaller panel of Cougar 80lb Natural Cardstock.  I layered the cards using Score Tape and attached the fruit to the front of each card with Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Adhesive.  

Cougar Natural A-2 Envelopes complete this colorful set of note cards that can be used for any occasion.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and will take advantage of the sale this month on all white and ivory cardstock at Cut Cardstock.

Wow, Birgit. These are such lovely note cards. Your water coloring is amazing with the Gansai Tambi's. For some reason, I just have such a hard time using them. Fabulous cards, my friend.

OMG, I love the watercoloring on those pears and the apples (and all the other fruits). You are a true artist with so much talent, Birgit. These are such pretty cards and so colorful.
