SRM Christmas Card Gift Set


I am sharing a set of Christmas cards in a SRM A2 Card Box.  I created a set of 3 cards with 3 different Lori Whitlock SVG files and then embellished them with lots of SRM Stickers and Marschino Red Twine, my very favorite!  I used the Christmas Live Life Sticker Set along with Small Green Scalloped Punched pieces for my embellishments, a button and a bit of twine finish each card.

I included the cards and some envelopes in the A2 card box.
It will make a wonderful little gift this holiday season.
I used a Jamie Cripps SVG file to create the bow and then decorated the A2 box with FreeStyle Christmas Sticker Set along with another Red Small Scalloped punched piece!
