Making Watercolor Cards

July 9, 2008

I create hand-cut and assembled watercolor notecards with matching envelopes. Each design is one of a kind and can be adapted to any color scheme or theme. Watercolor note card of cat's face.


I use LuminArte Shimmers watercolor pots, a water pen, and fine point artist pens to create these cards. The best part is once the card has been sent, the recipient can frame the front of the card and have a personalized piece of artwork!


Approximate Time: 30min.



  1. Determine how large of a card and envelope you wish to create. Utilize the many available online templates or templates available at local craft stores to make the cards and envelopes
  2. Fish notecard.


  3. Sketch out and paint the design on the front of the card, the lower left hand corner of the envelope, and on the flap side of the envelope.
  4. Stick figure basketball player card.


  5. Gift or send these special cards to a friend or loved one!

Make a card using the naive art style. Use watercolor paint as the medium of choice and draw a simple cottage as the focal point. The beauty of naive art is that there is no right or wrong.
