Mixed Media Cards

By Olga Heldwein

“Today is my turn on simply G45. I decided to create cards with mixed media backgrounds and some fussy cutting. It gave me also chance to take the Seasons collection for nice spin 🙂 I really adore this collection it gives you so many possibilities.  I so regret that I didn't make all 4 card seasons as set but maybe next time 🙂

I created a video from creative process for you in case you want to recreate the project.
