A Simple Watercolour Birthday Card
Here's a simple watercolour birthday card you can create in no time with the template provided below.
Or you can also use this same card design idea and write your greetings with a calligraphy pen or black marker. You could utilise a rubber stamp word image for this watercolor card too. But make sure the ink used is permanent non-bleed ink.
No affiliate but I highly recommend the 'uni-ball fine deluxe water-proof pen' by Mitsubishi as that is the pen I am using for my journal which I love to watercolour all over.
Easy Watercolour Birthday Card
Watercolour Birthday Card Template
As the names of your friends are surely different, I have not include any name on the wording template. So all it says is "Happy Birthday to you!". Have a look at the image below and you will understand.
Download the template and print on a sheet of thick paper maybe about 160gsm if your printer is able to.
How To Watercolour The Card
Step 1: Load Brush with First Colour
- Step 1: Load your brush with the first colour of your choice and start from the top left corner of the laser printed text.
Step 2 : Same Colour for Bottom Part of Text.
- Step 2 : Load same colour paint for the bottom of the text - heavy on the right.
Step 3 : Add 2nd Colour to the Text
- Step 3 : Add your second colour to the text while first colour is still wet. The colour will run a bit and mix with the first colour at the edges.
Step 4 : Drop 2nd Colour onto the Top Right
- Step 4 : Drop some second colour into the top right just below first colour and allow the two colour to mingle where two colours touched.
Step 5 : Introduce 3rd Colour
- Step 5 : Introduce the third colour of your choice into the white spaces while all colours are still wet.

Final Step : Clean-up With Clean Brush
- Step 6 : Use a clean brush to pick up colour from the letter 'i' and exclamation mark where the dots are covered with paint and not so visible.
- Optional: Add scattered gold dots all over the the watercolored parts. (See photo above.)
