In celebration of Purple Onion Designs’ sale that starts today – I thought I’d share a little Magical Monday with you! If you’re new to my blog, the Magical Monday videos don’t have any voiceovers…once in a while I treat myself to making a video without having to come up with stuff to say. LOL! It’s harder than you think. 🙂

Color a soft birch forest

I haven’t used my Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle pencils in a while…they’re pricey, but they’re yummy! They “feel” different when they color – softer, I guess you might say? For most papercrafters they’re probably more than you need; I generally recommend Inktense pencils for crafters. But if you have a few favorite colors from the Museum Aquarelles on your Christmas wishlist, they’d be great stocking stuffers to put on Santa’s list!

To finish off the card, I diecut the colored image with the Double Pierced Dies from Avery Elle – then diecut another piece, and nested the colored one inside. That left me with 1) a finished clean frame around the card and 2) a nicely pierced rectangle leftover from the second diecutting, for another card!
