Happy new year! A festive way to celebrate the new year is by sending a friend a handmade card, and the only materials needed for this project consist of:
- blank paper
- a pencil
- colored pencils
- a reference photograph
This card making project was very cheap, and following steps were used to create this card:
The reference photograph was used as inspiration for drawing a landscape of Mount Baldy with a palm tree on a handmade card.
The text of "happy new year" was sketched over the illustration of Mount Baldy.
The sky was colored in with a light-blue colored pencil.
The peaks of Mount Baldy were colored in with a violet-blue colored pencil, and the foreground of the landscape illustration was shaded in with the same color.
The fronds of the palm tree were shaded in with light and dark green colored pencils to create dimension.
The "happy new year" text was colored in with a ruby colored pencil.
A personalized message was written on the inside of the card before sending it to a friend.
