This year’s free calendar from Try it – Like it – Create it is an adult coloring calendar. Once the month has passed, please don’t throw away your creation, turn it into a card!

The materials are straightforward, you’ll need a slimline card base, your colored image, a way to cut down the calendar, and some adhesive.
I couldn’t just leave the image as it was, I chose to add some shimmering watercolor paint to a few areas. I bought the watercolors from Temu – they are fantastic metallic-based watercolors available at a great price.
Making the card is pretty straightforward forward but I’ve added a simple way to make a matching envelope with no measurements needed.
The dark green petals around the center have the shimmer added. I love how this project is a kind of recycling project where you can get more mobility from your colored image. What a nice way to share your work with someone special!
