Has someone shown you a kindness that makes your heart gurgle with gratitude?
Buying an expensive card at the store is quick and easy. But pouring yourself into creating a masterpiece like “Dewy Rose” is a labor of love. Your card will be cherished because it conveys how sincere your appreciation really is!
Elena teaches bright and cheerful images using Copic Markers and colored pencils in lessons at CraftsForPaws.com. Like Vanilla Arts lessons, Elena’s C4P tutorials are usually too large for cards. She’s created this Spotlight series of videos to help you make use out of your growing stash of amazing class projects.
Why bother buying mass produced greeting cards that are here one day and in the trash the next?
Today Elena will teach you the joy of making a card that will brighten someone’s mantelpiece for months!

Elena is an alumni of Vanilla Arts, Marker Painting Foundations and Colored Pencil Plus.
