Hello crafty friends,

I hope you’re doing well!  As I was organizing my art supplies I ran into the Hold on to Hope stamp set and coordinating Cross of Hope dies from the Annual Catalog.  So, of course I stopped organizing to make today’s card and tutorial.  (I’m easily distracted.)  AND I was eager to use the Ornate Layers dies, a new, early release suite.

You can find the tutorial after today’s Shopping List.  It’s really a quick and easy card to put together.
