ST. PATTY'S DAY CARDS


ST. PATRICK'S DAY | RAINBOW CARDS
We're mailing St. Patrick's Day cards to our family to spread cheer.

These watercolor cards are simple to execute and allow the children enough time to write a little greeting, too. If not for St. Patrick's day, these are a nice way to spread a little Spring cheer. Wouldn't you love to catch a rainbow, too?

SUPPLIES:
Card Stock or Water color paper cut to size for envelopes
Matching envelopes
Watercolor Paint
Water
Paint Brush

HOW TO:
- Using all of the colors of the rainbow, paint single lines in each color, across all of the cards to create a rainbow.
- Let dry.
- Write a cover greeting across the center of the rainbow.
- Pen your greeting or help your children write a personal letter.

Slip in envelope, address and mail.

Happy day.
