The first card has 3 layers on the basic card. A layer of tempting turq. and then razzleberry and then a layer of whisper white. The white I sponged tempting turq. light layer all over, then on top 3/4 I added night of navy and a layer of razzleberry sponged all over. When finished flick water drops on it and let dry. Layer your little image on a mat place in center of card wrap ribbon with bow stamp your sentiment and you are done!
For the elf I used a card base of real red, took mossy meadow and ran it thru the new birch tree emboss folder added the white highlights with a gel pen wrapped my real red ribbon around and attached to card. Took my elf and layered it on 2 layers to make it pop.
