Last-Minute Xmas Cards


Those who know me well know that I don’t do anything at the last minute. I was always the first one to have a paper turned in to my professor, the first one to have their shopping list made for Christmas dinner, and the first one to have all my purchased gifts wrapped and under the fully-decorated tree. So I must confess, I didn’t do these cards at the very last minute. But you could!

I simply traced a circle onto watercolor paper, applied watercolor paint (trying to get one side shaded darker than the other), and then used a black Micron pen to trace my details and add the bow. As a last step in their creation, I used double-sided tape to adhere the completed painting onto ready-made cards. Notes on the inside, addresses on the envelopes, and the cards were ready for the mailbox.
