Some people like making lots of cards in a single design. I am not one of those people. Making multiples makes me itchy and irritable. But when I finished this particularly punchy Christmas card, I quickly made four more while the colored card stock was still out on my desk.
Those two shades of green and two different punches set off with a festive red bow quietly represent Christmas in all that glorious white space! Design-wise, I especially like the asymmetry of this ensemble...such a small arrangement, yet so interesting and balanced.
To attach the bow, I put a dot of liquid glue on the top of the leaves, laid the knot of the bow on the dot, and held it down with an acrylic block until it dried completely. That should (hopefully) hold the thing together.
