With the holiday season upon us, why not get a jump on creating some festive cards to give to your family and friends. These cards – created by guest blogger Heidi Blankenship are stunning yet simple enough to create that you can send them to your entire christmas card list. Be sure to make a few extra for those unexepected holiday guests or last minute get togethers.
Tip: Gold foil and other mirrored paper will show any little imperfections like the cut lines in the mats used for die cutting. To avoid this lay down a scrap piece of paper on your mat and then add gold foil or mirror paper and die on top–results–no imperfections! Just shiny perfection.
