WCMD being creative with clear stamps video tutorial


Welcome back again! How many cards have you made today? Or are you just having fun being inspired all over the internet? Have you sign up for prizes yet? Be sure and check my first post of the day for more links and details!

As I was making holiday cards, I had a look I wanted to achieve in my head. I wanted to use branches. Either holly or boxwood. Guess what? I didn't have any images in my stash that fit the bill. After looking around a bit, I came across a wreath image from Avery Elle. It had leaves and branches, but it was in a circle. Watch this video tutorial to see what I did next...
