Handmade Holiday


I made these Thank you cards using Katherine Teague's new digital kit "Handmade Holiday." This is a Christmas themed kit, but I used it to make non-holiday themed cards.

I love the intricate patterns and designs on this digital paper and selected a portion of it to use on my cards. I tweaked the colors in Photoshop then printed them out.

After trimming and stamping the Hero Arts sentiment, I added the zig-zag with my sewing machine. I also traced the white outlines of the pattern with a glitter pen, unfortunately they didn't show up very well in the photos...

These were super quick and easy to make. I think this will be a perfect project or solution if you need a quick gift set.
