    I love your cards, and your video! It is so nice to see that you make “boo-boos” too, and you shared how to cover them up rather than toss the card and start over. I think I would have used several trees by now with no finished cards if I didn’t work around the errors! 🙂 But I am finally learning that it’s no big deal to make mistakes; it may actually turn out to be a masterpiece – WITHOUT covering up the mistake! Thank you so much, Vicky, for sharing your talents and tips!

    Vicky,
    Thanks very much for the excellent ideas. I ordered the trellis stencil earlier today and now think I should have ordered the stencil bundle (serenity). I will contact Altenew and see if I can cancel the trellis only and instead get the bundle. I loved all four of these cards. You’re so gifted at what you do!!
