Cards for Men Made Easy with SC&P30th September 2018
This issue Claire Gladman took on the ever-challenging task of perfecting cards for men, but this time to achieve classic Christmas cards. We tasked her to make the most of the latest releases from Precious Marieke, available from www.craftsulove.co.uk.
She was so inspired we couldn’t fit them all into one issue – so we kept this one to show you exclusively on our brand-new website.
