Windows Card - Burgundy with Rosettes

Rosettes like this may look complicated, but they are easy to draw with just U's and V's. Click here for my tutorial, posted on my "Mostly Markers" drawing blog.

The burgundy top layer is PaperTrey Ink scarlet jewel. The circular windows were cut with 1/2" and 1-3/4" punches. To draw and color the rosettes, hearts, and frame, I used a wine Copic multiliner and Copic markers RV32, RV34, and R59.

The sentiment reads "Thinking of you ... always ..." and was computer-printed in colored ink with Papyrus font (all caps). To curve the sentiment, I used the WordArt feature in Word for Mac.
