A birthday card I did for a buddy.  outside of the card was metallic dark red.  Inside of the card was gold . I cut the edge of the folded card at angles, n wrapped the edges 

The painting I did (watercolour) was a local scene. in watercolour n glued it onto front of the card. Dunno if he appreciated it , but I enjoyed doing it. Took approx 2 weeks to make .
