I had a leftover card with the cross-stitch pricked out and decided to bead it. I used yellow beads but they pick up the color of the green panel and it darkens them.
I folded a side-fold card front in yellow and used a scalloped Nestability die to cut an aperture. Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the 'argyle' folder and then used a 'lettuce' Adriondack ink pad direct-to-paper to color the raised portions.
I attached the beaded panel to the inside of the cut-out.
