Custom Watercolor Art for Holiday Cards

ArtKimberly HeimbachComment

The holidays are around the corner! Now is the time to put those holiday cards together. Looking for something different than the typical photo card? Don’t have time to schedule a photoshoot? Well i have the perfect solution for you, custom art!

There are some options for the artwork I offer. You can have an illustration created of either your family or your business associates. Above is an example of a custom illustration I created of business associates of Kelly Ferm Interior Design. Below is an example of a family of 6 family portrait, yes pets count as family members! The Kelly Ferm art did include additional fees for concept and adding the Christmas tree decorating elements. For something like this you contact me for a quote. For the family art you can place your order here.

How to order your original watercolor holiday art cards….

Step 1 Place your order here for a custom family painting and digital artwork. After you place your order you will be contacted for preferably one photo to base the illustration of off but I can also work from multiple photos if needed.

Step 2 Send your reference photos to after being contacted.

Step 3 Allow 1-2 weeks for original painting to be mailed to you and high resolution digital version to be emailed to you.

Step 4 Upload your high resolution digital artwork to any card printing service. I recommend Shutterfly to upload to a blank card or Minted to upload to one with a design included. i choose to do it this way so you can have control over the price and how many cards you want printed. Both of these sites consistently offer discount codes so make sure you check on the current offer before placing your order for cards.Both sites also include envelope addressing which can save you a ton of time.

LOVE WHAT YOU DO and you will never work a day in your life!!!

A little motivation Monday for you aspiring creative ladies because this is exactly how I felt when I was invited to fashion illustrate inside the St. John Knit headquarters in Orange County.

This special day was for a top client of St. John's who was in town to preview the new Fall collection, have a beautiful lunch and receive a fashion illustration completed live by me with watercolor!

I thought this idea was so unique and now the client has a special piece of original art to remember her special day. If you are interested in hiring a fashion illustrator for your event or special meeting you can contact me via email

I've decided to keep the client anonymous out of respect for her privacy.

Bridal Shower Watercolor Roses and Peonies Welcome Sign by Ladyfolk Studio

Bridal Shower Watercolor Roses and Peonies Welcome Sign by Ladyfolk Studio

i had been daydreaming about all the details of my wedding before I was even engaged. So when the man of my dreams popped the question I couldn't wait to start bringing my, er...our vision to life! Now that my wedding has come and past (4 months ago as of yesterday!) I am happy to offer my custom wedding art services to others. 

I loved personalizing my wedding art and would love to help you have the same experience! I completely hand-painted both my bridal shower and wedding welcome signs with watercolor and picked the perfect accessories to adorn them. For my bridal shower sign, I added coordinating flowers to match my artwork and overall color scheme. For my wedding, I chose to use elements you could find in my studio as decor, which included artist easels and vintage frames I have collected from flea markets over the years. 

My watercolor wedding signs have become a keepsake piece of art, something I will treasure as a reminder of that day forever. -Kmberly Heimbach

If you are interested in making these handmade elements a part of your special day please contact me here for a quote or review average pricing and details in the shop if you are ready to place an order. I have a small selection of vintage frames for sale/rent and also artist easels available for rent.

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about wedding art and vintage accessories please email
