Expressing yourself through creativity works best when you have the right tools to bring your ideas to life. This launch of new materials includes a wide range of new things to make with, including:

  • Watercolour Cards 
  • Glow-in-the-Dark 
  • New Smart Labels (not available in New Zealand)

Welcome the watercolour dream team

The popularity of watercolour 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 watercolour making, we created a must-have dream team to make with watercolours using your Cricut machine — Cricut Watercolour Cards and the accompanying Cricut Watercolour Marker & Brush Set.

What’s included with Cricut Watercolour Cards and Cricut Watercolour 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 watercolours
  • Machine-compatible Cricut Watercolour Markers, to use with our library of ready-to-use images
  • A freehand Water Brush for even more versatility in creating watercolour effects

Cricut Watercolour Cards

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

These ivory-coloured 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 Watercolour Cards – R20
  • Cricut Watercolour Cards – R40
  • Cricut Watercolour Cards – S40

Cricut Watercolor Marker & Brush Set  

With eight different colours to choose from for your Cricut Joy, Cricut Explore, or Cricut Maker cutting machines, non-toxic Cricut Watercolour Markers round out your making power. Be sure to select the set that works for your Cricut machine — Cricut Joy Watercolour Marker & Brush Set or Cricut Watercolour 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 watercolour effects. Simply fill the brush with water and blend the desired colour with the wet bristles.
