I tried a few different techniques on this card using Art Impressions Sleigh Ride Circlet MTF set. I hand drew the frame on the front panel with a ruler and colored in the corners.
After making the tri-fold card with the images, I just attached it to the top of a plain white panel with the red scalloped mat. You can write a short note on the inside of the card or turn the whole thing over and write on the entire backside.
The holly branch and berries were made using the Die Cutting Napkins tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. It's a really cool tutorial so check it out.
Basically you die cut your image through eight layers of napkin which is kind of fused together in the cutting process and then you color it with watercolors. The napkin sort of plumps up with this cool texture.
I used my Prismas for the coloring. You can see some of that napkin texture here.
Have a fantastic week and ignore my coughing, which I'm sure you can hear WHEREVER you are. LOL
