turning hand-painted watercolors into animated e-cards I have a handful of friends and family who opt for the e-card/email combo instead of sending out a traditional Christmas card. And while there are many options for e-cards it’s exhausting to look through all the sites trying to find a quality animated e-card.

Husband and wife team, Timothy and Frederikke of Ojolie, do something incredibly unique – Frederikke is a Danish artist who creates stunning watercolor paintings – then her husband Timothy digitally animates the paintings so they come to life with music and dance.

The end result is a beautiful, tasteful and truly unique e-card that can be personalized with your own message (you can even adjust the font sizes if the recipient has trouble viewing small text) and you can even add your own photo to the card!

I love this Celestial Happy New Year’s e-card – the watercolor background is so stunning! Everytime I look through the cards, I’m amazed that Ojolie is able to let the original artwork shine through while digital animation plays on top of the painting:

You can search by category to easily find cards that appeal to you. I’m drawn to anything pretty and pink, so naturally I clicked on flower e-cards and found this pretty, vintage-esque birthday e-card. If only my own watercolor paintings looked as beautiful as this!

The animated butterfly flutters over the page and blends in perfectly with the watercolor painting:
