In Praise of Watercolor Greeting Cards

I’m really into watercolor greeting cards right now.

I watched, with the sound off, most of approximately 3 Instagram videos on how to make your own watercolor greeting cards and thought, “I can do that.”

It’s a teensy bit cavalier of me. Maybe delusional.

It’s a good thing I wasn’t watching how to do brain surgery videos.

Don’t worry. I know my limits.

And I don’t like gross things.

I do like pretty things and being crafty, so I did bust out my kids’ watercolor paints and tried making my own watercolor greeting cards.

Let me tell you, I can see why people get into this. It’s very soothing.

Will I keep going with this watercolor greeting card make-a-palooza? Probably. Until I run out of paper and something else captures my attention.

Not everyone wants to make their own cards, but most people do appreciate the genuine talent of artists.

Here are some watercolor greeting cards I found on Etsy that I thought were pretty, fun, or otherwise inspiring.

Whimsical Bird Notecards by LNS Creations Shop

I like whimsical things and the birds on these cards certainly fly high in that regard.

Vintage Botanical Watercolor Cards by Little Creek Card Co.

These cards remind me of a pressed flower collection, but prettier.

Purple Watercolor and Gold Greeting Cards by The Ritzy Rose 

I don’t know what sort of magic creates the gold part of these watercolor cards, but I’m definitely under their spell.

Mountain Watercolor Cards by Carol 1 Creations

If you sent me this card, I’d put it in a frame. Isn’t it pretty?
