‘Joy’ Card by Collette Mitrega
Tips & Tricks:
I pulled the Coconut Paper Blooms apart to create my white petal flower base.
I re-shaped the assorted paper leaves to look like holly.
I pulled the twig and Berry embellishment apart and used various elements on the card including the berries and vine.
I poked cheesecloth into any gaps.
I gold embossed the little wooden flourishes.
I splattered the card with Kaisercraft white paint using a small fan brush.
Hope you like my card and I hope you can use some of these tips!
