Free Scalloped Edge Christmas Card Tutorial
This Scalloped Edge Christmas Card is quick to make. Being short on time doesn’t have to mean short on style. The card design gets its pop from the decorative striped paper. The color palette of the paper includes nontraditional Christmas colors. For example, the two shades of pink replace the traditional red. We can all feel pressed for time during the busy holiday season. That is why I included product links to the items that make this card design special. Just click on the product names and you will go to the product page.
