    I enjoyed this video very much, Darlene. It took me awhile to figure out what you did with the stars, (did not realize they were outlines, not solid). I don’t think I have seen that black sparkly embossing powder before, but I will be looking for some to purchase. With different sentiments, and different watercolors, it strikes me this card could be for almost any occasion. Thank you for doing a video to explain your process.

    Hello Darlene: What a beautiful Christmas card, totally festive, happy, awesome. I love the rainbow effect you gave this pretty stars, the black, sparkly embossing powder makes the color of each of them really pop.
    One of the things I love about your videos is the fact you do not edit them, we are able to see exactly how you arrive at the finish card and we can see how you fix mistakes too, so we are able to learn so much. The best thing about hand made cards is the fact that they do not look like they just came out of the printing store and that is greatly appreciated by the recipient.
    Thank you for sharing.

  14. It’s GORGEOUS!!!!! Thanks for the video
