Welcome the watercolor dream team

The popularity of watercolor painting and cardmaking continues to grow, despite being a more difficult skill to pick up. After learning about the common issues that make it difficult to master watercolor making, we created a must-have dream team to make with watercolors using your Cricut machine — Cricut Watercolor Cards and the accompanying Cricut Watercolor Marker & Brush Set.

What’s included with Cricut Watercolor Cards and Cricut Watercolor Marker & Brush Set? You’ll find the essentials to easily bring your masterpiece to life. They include:

  • 3 different card packs designed to withstand the conditions of creating with watercolors 
  • Machine-compatible Cricut Watercolor Markers, to use with our library of ready-to-use images  
  • A freehand Water Brush for even more versatility in creating watercolor effects  

Cricut Watercolor Cards 

Made of cold-pressed paper specific for watercolors, these thick 140 lb (300 gsm) cards keep from buckling and warping as you apply water. 

These ivory-colored cards, accompanied by white envelopes, are available in three sizes for your different cardmaking occasions. Don’t forget to use these cards with your Cricut Card Mat 2×2 or Cricut Joy Card Mat

Cricut Watercolor Marker & Brush Set  

With eight different colors to choose from for your Cricut Joy, Cricut Explore, or Cricut Maker cutting machines, non-toxic Cricut Watercolor Markers round out your making power. Be sure to select the set that works for your Cricut machine — Cricut Joy Watercolor Marker & Brush Set or Cricut Watercolor Marker & Brush Set for Cricut Explore and Maker cutting machines. 

This 8-marker set also includes a freehand water brush. After you draw your design with the machine, use Water Brush to create additional freehand watercolor effects. Simply fill the brush with water and blend the desired color with the wet bristles.
