Tattered Lace ‘Dare to Dream’ Card by Nancy Watt

This summer, Tattered Lace launched four fabulous collections on Create and Craft that were a huge success. The first was Christmas Glow featuring Flectere dies, then there was the very elegant Deco Christmas, the stunning Wonderful in White, and Fantasy Christmas. All amazing and all very different. I’m delighted to share a project from the Tattered Lace Magazine Issue 45 using the very beautiful and very impressive Fantasy Christmas dies. — Nancy Watt.
