Joy tree card made using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Hello, friends!


Today I have a cute, but casual Christmas card made using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Also, on this card I made my own patterned paper using a stamp set and some grid lined cardstock. I love doing this, but always found it daunting because I am not always so great at lining stuff up. I found this really great grid lined cardstock here. I can now line up my background stamping perfectly!
