DIY Watercolor Greeting Cards for Mother’s Day

We’re taking it back to elementary school this Mother’s Day with DIY watercolor cards!

These cards take only a few minutes to make and add a thoughtful handmade touch to any gift. And in true Girl Talks Geek fashion, I made sure there was a way to add a geeky element.

Below is everything you need to create your own cards including:  tutorial links, geeky quotes, and a shopping list of gift ideas to pair with your colorful creation.


Watercolor Tutorials – As a beginner I’ve used Youtube as my teacher. Here are a few simple tutorials you can reference to create watercolor backgrounds and simple flowers:
