Designer’s Tip: Use the Water brush to blend the 2 colors where they meet on the card topper. To prevent warping when drying, place the web Card Topper under something heavy so that it will dry flat.
- Cut the Squares Water Color Paper to 9” square and mat with brown cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue to the center of the blue/green watercolor paper.
- Use the Water Brush to apply medium blue Gelato around the outside edge of the script portion of the topper. Color the area around the cut away frame green. Let dry. Use the stylus and pad to color the inside of the Card Topper frame and outside edge with dark brown ink.
- Place a photo behind the Card Topper opening and mat with brown cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue 2 1/4” from the top and 3/4” from the right. Use 9” of 1/2” wide blue organdy ribbon to make a bow and glue to the bottom right edge of the frame. Mat a 2 3/4”x3 1/2” photo with brown cardstock, leaving 1/8” border and glue the bottom left page corner, overlapping Card Topper.
- Use the Water Brush to apply blue Gelato across the top and green across the bottom of the Card Topper greeting cut out. Color the center of the blank greeting with dark brown ink and the outside edge with blue Gelato. Let dry and mat with brown cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border.
