vdry cute how you stamped on the inside of the doily then backed it. love the texture.

Both Christmas cards are fantastic! I'm a Core'dinations newbie but have a feeling it will be my "go to" paper in the very near future. Spellbinders dies (and my Grand Calibur) are always on my craft table since they are so versatile and really dress up a card beautifully. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
