LinkToday's card was made with the Vintage Door PreCut Set. It is an inspiration from decorations that I put up in my foyer in my own house. I tried to recreate the feeling of Christmas from my hometown in New England in my house here in GA. It has a very frosty icy feel with lots of white and silver accents and the look of the garland that I hang above my door every year. The following is a list of supplies I used to create this card:
