Home for Christmas Card

Updated: Nov 28, 2021

Welcome Digi Divas Everywhere! Today I am feeling a bit sentimental. Like so many, our hearts seem to go home for the Holidays. I have always enjoyed our holiday family trip to my Grandma Susie's farm house in Illinois years ago... This card pays homage to those trips. I am sure many of you have- and still do- journey home as families gather this Holiday Season. This card is made with one of my favorite Christmas Digi Sets- Over the River. Here we go!

This card is a 4-1/2"x6-1/4" double Z-Fold gate card.
