We have been busy over here creating Christmas cards for friends and loved ones. It’s been so fun to bring in one of my favorite mediums: watercolor. It is such a fun medium to work with. I love that it dries quickly and that I can achieve beautiful results with just a little effort. I thought you might enjoy doing some too. So, I’m sharing eight with you! I hope you enjoy these step-by-Step watercolor Christmas cards for beginners. I did a post for each one (and even some videos) so I will just link to them below (click on the picture to go to the specific post).
You can find the patterns and even a finished printable card (just in case you are seeing this and don’t have the time right now to paint…I get it) in the Resource Library. Just look for the Christmas Card Patterns and Finished Christmas Card Bundle. If you don’t have your password yet, you can go HERE to get one and join our community.
