Wreath Builder Cards, with Teri

Join me to see what all the fuss is about for Gina K Designs amazing wreath builder templates and to create three beautiful cards. While this class focuses on basic wreath building, there are many other ideas to try. The snowflake example below includes a birthday sentiment but that could easily be changed out for a Christmas or holiday greeting. 



Photos just don’t do these cards justice but I’m including two to try and capture some of the shine and shimmer.
