Get inspired for Christmas by the Pantone Colour of the Year

18th August 2018

We got our hands on a never-seen before project from Sarah Gray, from her set of cards set to appear in our sister title, Cards & Crafts for Christmas. She’s made some fantastic cards for the yearly title inspired by 2018’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet. Here’s a bonus make for you to try!
