Handmade Watercolor Doodled Christmas Cards

We have some fun and colorful Christmas cards to share with you today! Dana Tatar created these cards using some of our kraft card bases and Tangled Tags from a Tattered Angels pack. These Tangled Tags are great for coloring and Dana did a wonderful job of choosing colors that really gives them a festive feel. She also paired the Tangled Tags with some of our Miscellanies papers which are just perfect for holiday crafting. All the layers are perfectly coordinated and anyone who receives these cards will be thrilled!

“I started this card set with 7gypsies Kraft and Canvas Stitched Greeting Cards to save time. I then added a pile of festive patterned papers and an embellished scallop tag. The Tattered Tangled Tags and Card Pack was fun and quick to color with Glimmer Mist Paints and they gave my cards a jovial focal point that is perfect for celebrating the holiday season.” –Dana Tatar

Dana colored the images on these cards using our Glimmer Mist paints.  Simply shake and pour them into small cups and apply with a brush for a wonderful watercolor look.

We love how Dana paired the colors red and yellow on this card. Not a color combination you usually see for Christmas but it works quite well! Those little 7gypsies charms also gives these cards another unexpected touch. 
A great idea to remember with our card bases is that since they are 5×7, they will fit into a photo frame if they are not too bulky. That way, you can preserve and display them year after year and they double as a sentimental piece of Christmas decor! 
We hope you enjoyed today’s cards. If you would like to see more of Dana’s work, check out her BLOG and her INSTAGRAM.
