Here are two samples of my winter landscape cards as " works in progress". Use them to get ideas for painting your own cards.  
I hope they will inspire you to paint and share your talent and love for watercolor with others.
Happy Painting!

First step: Paint the shadows and contour with a
pale wash of blue watercolor.
2nd step: Add the greenery under the snow and
darken the shadows.
Example of a similar background - lighter snow
on the evergreen is lifted with a damp brush
before the underpainting is dry.
