Holiday Cards

Every year, I love to search for the perfect Christmas cards to send to family and friends.  I'm often overwhelmed with all the choices and themes.  This year, I've made my decision early and will purchase cards featuring reproduction watercolors by Andrew Zega & Bernd H. Dams.  In addition to the  holiday card collection (a few examples shown here), there are over 250 watercolor cards from which to choose, featuring architectural monuments, garden follies and ornaments, and Chinoiserie among others.

The website includes watercolor renderings of incredible European buildings and serious architecture, but also includes whimsical subjects too (check out the "Architectural Alphabet").  It's an experience not to be missed and I think you'll be just as delighted with their watercolors as I am.

The artists also have a very informative blog, Noted, and you can find the link on my sidebar under "Inspiration".

Please let me know which are your  favorite cards after you've visited the Architectural Notecards website....

Happy Browsing!

  2. They're beautiful cards Deb and I would love to order some of the boxwood and gilded gold vase shown above. For Christmas I like the more traditional New England sort of cards featuring say a cardinal in the snow with berries. A touch of color but something that says Christmas.

  3. Oh how good is it to see something that doesn't have a cheap, dodgy Santa & Rudolph leering at you! I've bought my Chrissie cards from UNICEF for about a zillion years. Each year they do a different range with cover drawings & paintings done by the children they support globally. I love them to bits, although your gorgeous featured cards would come a close second!
