Framed Crosses – by Holly McMillen

Today Holly shares an absolutely stunning card that she is using as a sympathy card; however, with the beautiful cross design this could easily be a wonderful card for Easter with a simple change of sentiment. The colors are soft and subdued, allowing the beautiful die cuts to stand out. Take a look:


It just doesn’t get much prettier, now does it!

The woodgrain behind the crosses is a wonderful touch.
