Hi friends! I am really excited to be sharing a card video + several examples over on the Ellen Hutson blog today – they invited me to be their guest this month. So fun! I have a video tutorial as well as process photos for this easy and super fun card that you could use to make up those holiday cards in no time – or take your creating one masterpiece.

This is a card style shared in my Tried & True Cards class – and yes, you can still sign up! Lot of new material coming to students this week – loving the class!

Speaking of love, there’s a give-away…. of some of my favorite clean color pens AND the awesome elf stamps!
