The December Guest Artist is member (and card-maker extraordinaire), Lori Warren. I often enjoy Lori's cards on Instagram, so it was a no-brainer to invite her to be Guest Artist this month.
The Greetings to Go kit always comes with instructions, but Lori's cards demonstrate how easy it is to switch things up and make the cards your own. The addition of the Jumbo, Greeting, and Art Nouveau stamps and a few extra 8.5x11 plains allows extra flexibility. Mix and match these elements to create six unique cards.
