Comfort & Joy

This card could be made with any color cardstock.  We chose the Wisteria Wonder because of its soft hue.  You can almost feel the comfort when looking at it.  We actually switched the center die cut from the snowflake to the Doily setting of the Triple Layer Doily Punch.  Ya know–doily on a doily?

Paper: Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Shimmery White
Ink: Versamark, Wisteria Wonder
Tools: Northern Frost die, Big Shot, heat tool, Scallop Circle punch, flower from Itty Bitty punch pack, acrylic block
