Stamped on vellum with Versamark ink, gold embossed, and colored on the backside with Copic markers. No tricky shading on this one, although I think it could be possible to a certain degree. Maybe next time.
I made a frame and adhered it to the vellum with 1/4" and 1/8" Scor-tape, which solved the problem of adhesive showing under the vellum. Backed it up with white card stock and trimmed the outer edges flush. Added the die cut sentiment and a die cut poinsettia. The folded card measures 6 3/4" x 3 3/4".
Inside is a gold embossed sentiment:
I liked it with the simple, pristine white. I considered colors, designer paper, a gold die cut poinsettia, and rejected all of them. I will say that when one chooses all white at the outset, it makes finishing up the card a very quick process. I'll list supplies below.
