What sets this card sketch apart is the garland draped behind the main image. In this example, I used a white thread with white pom poms on it, which tied in perfectly with the white background and white Christmas tree.
To make the image stand out more, I matted it on ink-distressed card stock and raised it on 3D adhesive. Then the thread didn’t bunch up the paper or get trapped and snagged underneath.
Before you attach the matching patterned paper to the card itself, wrap it three or four times with fibers like a garland. Then adhere it to the front of the card and center the image, raised on 3D adhesive for some added dimension.
