Last week saw one last effort to create some clean and simple (CAS), quick but stunning homemade Christmas cards. I love the classic kraft look with traditional festive colours so all of these cards I posted over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today follow the same simple design. I managed to create twenty cards following this same basic design. This one featuring the ‘Oh What Fun’ stamp set from Lawn Fawn is my favourite!
