First, I die cut small stitched holly leaves and berries from watercolor paper using Festive Holly Dies, and watercolored them with Distress ink reinkers (Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs, and Fired Brick). I found that coloring using reinkers give more bright and rich colors than blending with the same colored inks.
Next, I decorated the front panel using Winter Woodland Stamp Set and Woodland Critters Coorrdinating Dies, then I adhered holly leaves and berries on the top of the round frame using foam tapes. I also rounded a string on the top of the card, then finished it off with adding some sequins. To give it a clean look, I only wanted to use clear sequins for embellishment, so Sparkling Clear Snowflakes Sequins Mix and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins were used.
In the first card, I made a one layer copic colored scene.
In the second card, I gave some dimension by adding diecut images on the front panel using foam tapes. I also gave it some color accent by using red-white twine as shown below.
In the third card, I used brown leaves, and I colored critters in gray tones to maintain overall neutral look.
