I placed twine on front of the card base before adding my background paper. The twine is to tie the card shut. For the background paper which I used both on the front and inside I used an eBrush with a Sharpie marker. I discovered if the Sharpie is too far in the holder you will get a splattered effect. Then I went and used aquamarine metallic watercolor paint over the marker color. I used Spangles for the stars. The only bad thing was that glue had a tendency to come through the hole. I wrapped twine around my tag before adhering it. The angel is pop dotted. I made the "Holy Family" smaller than inside as I originally was going to use two tags on the front but changed my mind after not having room on the scrap of Kraft paper to cut out a narrower tag.
Now to show this to my oldest granddaughter to see if she wants me to print and cut the images so she can make her own card. Too bad I don't have a mantle as this would be cute sitting on a mantle. Of course you could make any scene you wanted using an accordion card base. It might be fun to create a winter scene.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
