Hearts Come Home Woodland Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! I hope you had a great weekend! Last night was our "Serene Stampers" Virtual Christmas Party and we had soooo much fun! Demonstrators across Canada on my team 'met' up in our Facebook group for two hours of sharing Christmas traditions and memories, favourite holiday songs and a Christmas recipe swap, an ornament contest and prizes. Of course, there was lots of chatter about the new 2018 Occasions and SAB too - we ALL love the new products. What a good time we had! Two hours zipped by so fast. I have a very active FB group with my Serene Stampers community and I can't begin to tell you in words how blessed I am to have such amazing, positive, wonderful women in my life. All because of Stampin' Up! and sharing our love of creating. Pretty darn awesome. 

Today's card is one I made with the Woodland embossing folder - here is the tutorial for you:

  1. Sounds like you all had a blast. How nice to have the friendship of so many SU members. I really like this card. It would also make a good sympathy card.
