I decided to include a little hand drawn element to my card - I deliberately coloured it much paler than the foreground, giving the impression of distance. (nothing fancy, just squiggles that hopefully look like bushes/trees)
Here are pictures of both the front and inside of the card.....
........and lets not forget the customised envelope
Dependent upon the type of paper the envelope is made of I sometimes use Copics as above, however if the paper is a tad too porous and looks like it will bleed, then I play safe and use coloured pencils. Here is a little tip - put a scrap piece of paper inside the envelope when using Copics, so if any colour does come through it marks the paper, not the back of the envelope!!
