DIY Coloring Page Greeting Cards
Did you know you can use your coloring page to make your own greeting cards? If you love to color and you collect coloring pages and coloring books, you might be wondering what to do with all these beautiful pictures you’ve colored. How about making note cards and greeting cards? You can make your own cards that you can then share with friends and family that you’ve customized yourself with your own favorite colors.
You can create greeting cards using your coloring pages in a variety of ways. Today I’m going to show you how to make a card using a printable coloring page.
- Coloring page – Download a free flower coloring page designed by Jen Goode
- Colored pencils, markers or watercolor pencils
- White Paper/cardstock
- Scissors or paper cutter
Print out the coloring page at 30% original size on white cardstock.
Color or paint your picture however you’d like. Trim the colored image down as desired.
Paint or color an additional page of paper, I used watercolor pencils and a waterbrush to quickly create a color blend look on my paper. If painting, allow to dry.
Glue the trimmed coloring page to the colored background paper. Trim down around the colored picture, leaving a ¼” border.
Use a third piece of cardstock and fold it to make a card. Glue the coloring page art to the card.
Optionally, add a nice sentiment or note to your card. You’re finished!
