Holiday Card Week – Day 3 (BLOG CANDY!)


On this third day of Holiday Card week, I have two great whimsical cards by our talented Jennifer Holmes. The first card uses a lot of dies, punches, and cardstock layers to frame the tree stamp from PSA Tree-O Peel & Stick stamps. The cute trio of trees is really enhanced by this. This technique creates also a lot of depth within the card. "You make the season bright" sentiment stamp is such a wonderful message to send a friend or loved one.





I just love Jennifer's work. If you have a chance, pop on over to her adorable blog. It's full of great designs and tons of inspiration. http://www.simpleflourishes.com/ Jennifer's one of our longest standing design team members and also one of our most published. You'll see a lot of her work featuring PSA Essentials this coming spring in Paper Creations, CardMaker, Paper Crafts & more. We're appreciative of Jennifer and all that she has done for us at PSA Essentials.
