Free Watercolor Birthday Cards

Birthdays are on the forefront of my mind right now. With 5 birthdays in my family in the next 6 weeks! Between my family and my husband’s this time of year is a birthday bonanza. Which I love because I am a total birthday fanatic. My second oldest just turned 4 on the weekend, which we celebrated with cake, swimming, her restaurant of choice. Which was Costco. Yes. You can’t make this stuff up! She chose a strawberry cheesecake – a girl after my own heart.

I absolutely love making a fuss over people for their birthdays, but I am also not great at remembering them! We have a decent sized family with in-laws, cousins and the like so birthdays start to blend into one another over the year. This card came in perfect as I realized I’d forgotten to grab a card for my friend the day before. I can never seem to remember to get the cards any sooner than that…

Celebrating the people I love is my favourite thing to do, and birthdays are the best reason to go over the top. So, I created these lovely watercolor birthday cards to share. These are simply & sweet and perfectly delicate. I love the combination of watercolor and pen illustration together. Pair this card with a bouquet, some wine and it’s a great birthday for the recipient!

    […] Watercolor patterns can look so beautiful and can give off a handmade vibe – which is always more special! Do you want to make adorable birthday cards for someone special? Well, all you need to do is to print these out and cut them into shape! It’s recommended to make the flowers with paint first and once it’s dry, print out the design on top of the colored flowers – for better results. foxandhazel […]

    Love these card ideas, I’ve decided to paint some myself, can I ask is it best to use watercolour paper for the cards?
    Or better to scan in the watercolour image and make the card on different paper?

      Hi Julie!

      I would recommend using 140 lb watercolor paper, or 98 lb mixed media paper to create the cards. The mixed media paper will fold nicer as it’s thinner. If you are tech savvy, you could absolutely scan your work and print them! There usually is some editing required when scanning work though, just a heads up 🙂
