Merry Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,

With the holidays being right around the corner, I thought I would share a holiday card with you. I started out as a designer creating cards and I love it, especially now that I have the KellyCraft Laser Square in my tool box!

I did not create this card to be an easy mass production card where you can sit down and create 30 of them in one night. This card will take you a little bit longer to create but it's well worth the time you spend making it. This is the type of card that your recipient is going to want to save and cherish for a very long time. This type of card is my very favorite to create and I hope you'll love it too!

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...
