Happy Holidays friends! Today I’m popping in quickly today with a Flower Die cut card tutorial. Easily make a bunch of cards with this idea!
Die cutting so addictive because it is SO easy! I particularly love die cutting paper into pretty shapes.

I like to die cut extras while I have all my supplies out. Makes it worth the time 🙂
How to die cut Watercolor Paper
Step by step instructions for die cutting watercolor paper for your crafts.
Total Time: 15 minutes
With the Crossover 2 Die Cutting Machine, I was easily able to cut Watercolor paper. I used 140lb paper, and this is super thick and yet the machine cuts it like butter.
The Crossover 2 comes with a special metal shim plate that you include in your die sandwich. I find the tension of 6 to 8 works perfect for watercolor paper. After that, one run through the die cut machine and you’ll have beautiful flowers!
Once you have your watercolor paper flowers, you can choose to paint them anyway! I used these shimmery paints to get soft shiny pastel colors.
To assemble the floral cards- I used two medium and two small size floral die cuts from this set. Layer and adhere them all using a really strong tape adhesive like this one and press down firmly. Add a sentiment and done 🙂
