DIY Christmas Card Ideas

My latest tutorials for the Village Haberdashery's blog are all about making your own Christmas cards!

I used some gorgeous patterned paper, washi tape and rubber stamps from the Village Haberdashery's shop to make a whole bunch of festive cards. The cards were so much fun to make,and I totally fell in love with the supplies I used - especially that washi tape, isn't it lovely?
