Sending Joy - Pinkfresh Studio Sparkling Wintry Forest Card

Hey there friends! Today I’m up on the Pinkfresh Studio blog sharing a little holiday card inspo and tips for adding dimension, depth and texture to stenciled cards.

As a girl who grew up in the Middle East and lived in California for nearly 2 years prior to where I am now, I certainly don’t need snow for it to feel like the holidays. That said, while I know the holidays have passed (so sad!) I’m still all for using snowflakes on my […]
