    A very pretty card. I love (and have) the Gran’s Garden flowers so am always happy to see cards using them. Thanks so much for your tips on the Ombré technique.

    Huh? Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include incorporating packing dies into a card project like Lizzie shared in the video.” You might want to update this above to make sense. Lizzie, great card and video!

    Hi Lizzie! What a simple yet so dynamic way of adding interest to the sentiment. It’s a technique I plan on using. Thx for the video! I also wanted to take this time, right before Christmas to say THANK YOU FOR AN AMAZING YEAR! I have MANY of your designs and learned from your beautiful projects. One of the best things I’ve picked up from you, is taking the extra step to dress up my cards. Whether it be, adding different glitters, using p.papers instead of cardstock and adding interest with “die lines”. In other words, taking extra creative steps. I sincerely could go on & on. But you have made a difference in the way I craft now. Merry Christmas to you and your family & I wish you a really great year ahead!! Happy New Year!
