St. Nicholas from Graphic 45 – by Heidi Blankenship

Published by at 8 00 am under Christmas Cards,Graphic 45,Stamp Simply

I love Heidi’s card today on so many levels! The vintage  St. Nicholas from Graphic 45’s 2016 Christmas collection by the same name is just wonderful and Heidi showcased it beautifully by creating a rich background and beautiful wintry floral. I know you’ll love this project, too! Take a look:

The sparkly metallic velvet makes the perfect corners to frame this beautiful image.

And check out that super rich background – WOW!!!
