Welcome to the July release blog hop for Waffle Flower Crafts. Today’s hop is all about the holidays—yes, it’s Christmas in July!—and what better time to start planning for those holiday cards.
I just LOVE this new Outlined Pine Tree Foil Plate and wanted to create a cool, wintry design.
Plus the Essential Christmas Diecuts are SO easy to pop onto the finished card. Look at the shine:
