Check out some timely inspiration for our 2017 holiday collection below.
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
