Greeting Card Coloring Templates and Samples

Just finished a few coloring card templates and colored samples.
Used assorted markers (Copic Sketch, Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens, and Crayola Super Tip markers) and watercolors to color a few of the card templates. They will serve as examples in upcoming card-making classes for Elementary and Middle School students.
Feel free to print out the blank coloring templates below (I would recommend using 110 lb white card stock) and color them with markers (or your favorite coloring media) to make your own holiday greeting cards with your kids or students. You could also add decorative touches with metallic gel pens and silver markers. I would just appreciate a comment or e-mail with feedback on the reception and usefulness of these templates for your group.
This template could be printed on a sheet of card stock and cut in half to make 2 simple cards.
Basic cut out card. Print on a letter size sheet. Fold in halves twice leaving the Santa on the cover. Colored the outline and draw any additional elements you might like. Use sharp precision scissors to cut the outline of the Santa peeking around the wall. If up to the challenge, you could also draw and color the back of Santa inside the card.
This one was designed mainly as a coloring card with some blank space around to allow some creativity in drawing background environment like some snow and a few pines.

These Santa and Snowman designs lend themselves well for cut out cards and as blank canvases to exercise your individual creativity by adding your own background details and decorative marks.

The Maneki Neko cards feature a traditional Japanese Lucky Cat sporting a festive holiday hat.
