"My handmade Christmas card with the magical “ A christmas Carol” collection. I Wish You a Merry Christmas !" ~Tati Scrap
Now, how about trying an awesome card trend - a step card! Maggi has a great Snapguide so you can try it yourself.
"A handmade Christmas card is a wonderful gift for your special friends and this step card looks so much more complicated than it really is. If you have a Silouette, you can use a cut file for this card, otherwise, I've included a template that you can easily follow. Tip: Add sparkle to your cards by detailing with Stickles and make your embellishments stand out by popping them up with foam." ~Maggi
