Tips for Your Christmas Card Crafting

November Stamp of the Month Art #1

Art by Amy McGrew

How many ways can you use a "ticket?" Here's the first way ...... display it in one of our little pin clips - these are sold in packages of 12 for just $4.95. What a unique Thanksgiving card! The flowers come from our "Hooray Bouquet" set - one of my very favorite sets to use with our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, as we can cut just the right shapes for these floral images.
