What a fun challenge! I hope I read the instructions right because I didn't use any special tools or devices like cuttlebug or punches. I'm also adding it to yesterday's WT challenge because of the white gel pen.
For the images, I stamped the ornaments (Imaginisce) onto the matte coated c/s and heat set the ink. I don't have any of the Copics everyone's raving about, but I believe I do have every color that Sharpie makes. And since these are also permanent markers, I used them w/ a Prismacolor blender that's made for their version of Copics. It works really well w/ the Sharpies. So I colored and blended until I was fairly happy. Then I added the white gel pen accents in sort of a bandana tech. I cut the ornaments and attached them to plain c/s that I stamped the fir branch (PSX) w/ the Kpad and the greeting (Stampendous) w/ cardinal ink. I edged this w/ a red Sharpie and added the dots using a red glaze pen.
For the green bg, I stamped the swirls (Autumn Leaves) using the leaf green ink, then added the white lines using the white gel pen in a version of the faux embossing. It's edged w/ a white marker and these are attached to a bright blue card.TFL and you can see a closeup on my blog: The Write Stuff
