Since I learned painting with watercolors, one of the things I enjoy more making is Christmas cards. Watercolors are great because they are fast. You cannot go back and edit and re-edit like oil paintings. Once the brush touches the paper, that’s it. This makes watercolors quite challenging but it also gives them a fascinating look. The less perfect it looks, the nicer it is. And you can frame them or turn them into cards to give to your loved ones.

Every year I make a variety of watercolor designs, picturing trees, snow landscapes, snowmen and other Christmassy subjects.

This year I made more than usual because I participated for the first time (in the Netherlands) to a handmade Christmas market. I always loved doing handmade markets. It’s always a great and positive environment and it’s so easy to meet new people with your same interest, so the time usually flies!

So, as a Christmas gift to you, I scanned my favorite ones and made them into printable and foldable Christmas Cards. I hope you’ll gift these unique Christmas Cards to your loved ones and maybe keep one for yourself.

How to make the Christmas Cards

Step 1 –  Download the PDF file from the list below. Print it in high photo quality on standard A4 paper (or use a thicker paper if you want, keeping in mind that once folded it will be double thick).

Step 2 – Fold the paper in half along the shortest side, keeping the images on the outside.

Step 3 – Fold again the paper in half along the short side, keeping the “Merry Christmas” message inside.

Step 4 – Use a paper glue or double-sided tape to stick the inside pages (where there is no print).
