I needed to whip up card holders... but i forgot to take picture of the inside for you to see the way it works... it is actually really cool - the design is cut out with my Artiste cartridge and I love how it turned out.  Any hoo.... here is the first one i just made...

I first cut then misted the blue background with white.  I used a stamp I won and coloured it with my copics and added some faux stitching around it.
