Photo Holiday Cards


Martha made frame-style cards to highlight digital photographs of her newest kittens, Sirius and Electra. You can make a border using a frame-shaped stamp or "photo corners" using a triangular stamp.

    I love making handmade cards for all occasions. Using photgraphs is a wonderful idea. I thought I would go to my nearest produce farm and take photos of pumpkins to make Halloween cards!
