Introduction: DIY Pop Up Christmas Card With Watercolors

About: Hello there! I'm Francesca and I love drawing... that's why I started to share my passion with all of you with speed paintings and tutorials. I hope to inspire your artistic creations with my Instructables! :)

In this tutorial I will show you how to make a pop up Christmas card.

PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE THE COMPLETE DRAWING/PAINTING PROCESS.

Step 1: Materials

I listed the materials needed in the picture :)

Step 2: Drawing + Inking

Pick one of the sheets and draw the lines showed in the first picture.

Once you have done, draw the scene with pencil and ink it with waterproof pen.

Step 3: Painting

Start painting wet on wet with watercolors.

Add several layer of painting to make the paint more realistic.

Once the paint dried, add reflections with white pen.

Step 4: Painting the Cover

Pick the second sheet and paint "Merry Christmas" on it :)

Step 5: Cut + Stick + End

Cut the pop up parts.

Stick the two sheets together.

That's it, I hope you enjoy the tutorial.

Merry Christmas!
