Another reason to like Draftboard

So, I like to add a little color to my projects, and in making up a batch of gift card holders (my goofy family would rather have gift cards than actual gifts–maybe they don’t like my shopping and home made things :laughing:) I engraved some designs on the tops that looked a tiny bit boring. They needed some color. It turns out that Draftboard has the perfect texture/tooth for using colored pencils, in this case Prismacolor pencils. I think they add a nice touch.


I will finish off with a couple coats of matte acrylic spray to keep the colors from smudging.

The design file for the gift card holder is here.
