Here it is with a packet of tea and a couple of wallet sized pics of my daughter in her Junior ROTC uniform from a couple years ago. Yes, my totally hippie daughter was once in Junior ROTC and actually considered joining the military. :) I did a video tutorial for the Cocoa card here.
Stamps: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: cream colored 3-5/8"x6-1/2" envelope, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Basic Brown, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive and Ruby Red with Aquapainter, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie markers
Accessories: Riding Hood Red ribbon, Aquapainter, paper crimper, stapler.
First cut your envelope into 2 pieces, one 3" long and the other 3-1/2" inches long. The longer piece will fit into the shorter piece.
For the card "front" (the shorter piece)I watercolored the image with Ruby Red classic ink, and then on this one I used the Old Olive and Real Red markers to color the branches and berries. I did a different one watercoloring the branches with Old Olive and I liked that effect better. I highlighted the berries with a dot of white gel pen. Inked the edges of the image pieces with Basic Brown. Adhered the ribbon all the way around with Tape Runner, then adhered image to card.
Now, I stamped the branch shadow image in Kiwi Kiss repeatedly on front and back of the longer piece. Run piece trough paper crimper. Take an approx. 2" long piece of ribbon, fold in half over closed end of piece, and staple it on.
