Holiday Magic Release Week with The Ton & SOA

Today I have 2 more cards for the soon to be released Holiday Magic Collection from Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval.  (CLICKY to get on the wait list)   As I was creating these cards, I felt a little bit like an artist.  


Thankfully I turned on the camera while I was making these cards, so I can show you how they were made.

My second card uses the same technique as the first one, but I changed just a couple of things to make an entirely different card.  I wanted to show how you can use products included in the box with products you already have at home.  If you don't have a stitched rectangle die you could still make this card by trimming the panel down using your paper trimmer and adding faux dash lines with a pen or sewing your card on your sewing machine.
