This is a color combination challenge we had on Paper Wings last week. I also needed to make a Thank You card for a friend to give to someone. I pierced the red and brown cardstocks by using a piece of plastic canvas to align my holes. Worked pretty good!
Stamps: Sprigs, Thank You GWP
Paper: White Premium, Red and Brown DCWV Brights cardstock stack
Coloring: Prismacolor H2O Pencils, Niji Water Brush
Other: Paper Piercer, silver ribbon
I really like the looks of this card. It is difficult to see the piercing and you can sand this white core cardstock to get more emphasis on the piercings.
