What a beautiful example of Copic coloring we have today from designer Annette Allen in this card meant for a hello through the mail!
The foam adhesive behind the cut out figure creates depth, making it seem that the character is standing in front of the mailbox. Another nice detail is the stitching detail that is part of the background die and the banner die by Lil’Inker Designs. The stitching makes it seem that the elements are more grounded.
