Do you want to learn how to create a unique background feature on your cards?

Hi fellow crafters and Happy 2023! I am back from visiting friends and family and excited to share products from 2 new catalogs with you! For the next several weeks I will be showing you how to create beautiful cards and other paper crafting projects using my top favorite products from these new catalogs.
Today I will show you how to create a fun and unique background idea - one that will create an easy wow factor for your cards. I will be using a new bundle that just arrived - one I have been wanting to purchase when I first spotted it in the new Mini Catalog. 
Desert Details was one of my first choices from the Mini Catalog. Having lived in New Mexico for several years I grew to love the stunning desert landscape and unique art forms. This set and matching dies give you a hint of what makes the desert special and beautiful.
