How to Do Watercolor Roses & Gold Foiling (+ Free Download!) [VIDEO]


Hi all, after days spent working on this video, it is finally uploaded! In this video, I’ll be showing you how I made this watercolor card with gold foiling on vellum. I have a free download of this card for you to print at home and maybe give it to your mama. You can find the link down below. I hope you find this relaxing and it will inspire you to create!



I stopped filming at some point because I didn’t like how it’s looking. The leaves were too bold and I wasn’t happy with the composition. But after that, I played around with it by adding brighter colors to the roses and threw in some details to the leaves and when I posted a sneak peek on my Instagram Story, people actually liked it so thank you for the confidence boost, you guys! You made this video happen!


Moving on to hot foiling, thank you for your vote on my IG story, we went with gold and honestly, we can go with either of them and it will look good because foiled things are just so pretty! Hot foiling has been getting a lot of attention lately. My foiling videos went viral on Instagram and people are asking me to do a class on it so I am working on that right now. I also have a blog post about the foiling supplies here.

After the foiling is done, I aligned the vellum on top of my watercolor painting and punched holes on the top left corner with my handy Crop-a-dile, I LOVE me some puns! And, I stick a tiny brad to lock them in place and the card is done!


I really like how the vellum gives a soft and elegant vibe to the card and it swivels up and down so it makes it fun to interact with. If you enjoy watching the video, please SUBSCRIBE and follow me on Instagram for more fun stuff! :)
