Joy of Noel Free Tutorial

I don’t mean to panic you, but the countdown to Christmas is ticking away. But there’s still time to create a few handmade Christmas cards. Especially with this quick and easy layout. It can be adapted to any stamp set and Designer Series Paper.  For this card, I used elements from Stampin’ Up! Joy of Christmas Suite Collection including the Joy of Noel Bundle and Joy of Christmas 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. Find them in Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog.
