Sing Noel!

Peaceful Noel Bundle Pics

These samples will give you visions of sugarplums dancing in your head!  Check out the Buffalo Check (background) Stamp Set that was used to make the Noel Card.  According to old lore the Rob Roy Tartan was rebranded as Buffalo Check by a designer in Pennsylvania. We don't know if this is true, but either way, this background stamp will give your projects a rustic, homey feel.

Buffalo Check SS

This background stamp set creates beautiful and textured backgrounds and can be used on any holiday, home decor or all-occasion projects.

Here is a picture of the Peaceful Noel Bundle.
