Arlene creates a brilliant card using A Christmas Carol! Check it out below:

"It’s Christmas in July with this gorgeous new holiday collection from Graphic 45 - A Christmas Carol! I created what’s called a “bendi fold” card. It’s a fun way to create a dimensional card that you can display, but then fold flat for mailing. I included a video tutorial so you can give one of these a try!

Tip: Be sure to have a sharp blade on your craft knife as you’ll be cutting through 2 layers of paper (design paper and card stock) to create the slits for your tabs on the card."~Arlene

I can imagine the Christmas Scrapbook I could create with these Stunning papers. Graphic45, you always manage to outdo yourselves!

This set of papers is beautiful.

Am I right in thinking that this and the last romance set of papers are a new and different set of hues than used before; perhaps a bit grayer than other palettes? I look forward to seeing these lines used with other G45 papers.

The stamps are over the top wonderful!

Love this Christmas collection ! 💕

Every December, our friends and family meet together to watch the musical "Scrooge." We eat tons of scrumptious food, sing along to the music, and generally have a blast! Last year we had friends join us from Thailand, England, and Canada, as well. What fun! With this collection I could create such a wonderful (perfect!) hostess gift. Woohoo!
