I find this technique a bit tricky, as it requires a fairly steady hand (definitely not my forté). However, Megan, editor of Glamour & Grace, breaks it down step-by-step and the final result is just too cute for us not to try re-crating!

From bridesmaids cards to pretty much anything you can come up with, aren't these just gorgeous?! And the tutorial comes with both card & envelope templates as free printables! We couldn't ask for more.
Apart from the usual crafter kit (scissors, glue, scrap-paper for the envelopes, etc...) the specific material you will need for this tutorial is:
- Watercolour paper
- Watercolour paints (Megan says the cheap Crayola will work just fine)
- White coloured pencil or colourless blender pencil (she recommends Prismacolor brand)
- Medium flat paintbrush
Another wonderful tip is to place the cards against a window to help you tracing it over the template! A cheap solution for those without a light box.
