Graphic 45 Winter Wonderland Card with Tutorial

By Pam Bray
 

“I fell in love with the Winter Wonderland Collection as soon as I received it! I love all the beautiful Winter images! For me, the best part is being able to fussy cut images from parts of the pattern paper and add them in layers to other pieces of the Winter Wonderland collection. My first project is a special Christmas Card that is full of layers, dimension, one card layered into second card, tags and journaling blocks for my recipient to have to use for other Christmas projects, gifts, etc. There are so many different possibilities when creating with this beautiful collection.” ~Pam Bray

I'm not one for traditional Xmas colours, but hoping you will bring out something alternative including purples and blues and silver. Well, I can always wish. Very pretty details and motifs though.
