Ink & Watercolor Greeting Cards on Your iPad

Ink & Watercolor Greeting Cards on Your iPad

Did you know you can design custom greeting cards on your iPad?  This greeting card class is a long time coming. I’ve been making cards since the 90s, and finally moved my process over to digital designing. When you take the class you get some free drawings and templates that I use to create my cards.

I love the look on someone’s face when you hand them a hand made greeting card.  People especially love getting a card with an image or text that is personal to them.  So get someone in mind, and get ready to make them an awesome card!

I’ll show you how to:

  • create a simple hand drawn card using banners and illustrations to decorate the text.

  • use watercolors to add color to your illustrations

  • use a downloaded font and a traced image to create a humorous birthday card.​

In the class I make one simple birthday card that you could give to anyone, and one humorous card that you can give to the not-so-sensitive person in your life!

You can download both of these cards as free printables here.
