  1. Both cards are so cute with that adorable snowman, but that little extra touch does go a long way to make it look polished.

  2. the small finishing touches make a huge difference between the two cards. I love also the tip about the envelop, that is the one that has forgotten the most.
    Thanks for this great 5 Ways serie Jess.

  3. This is sooooo helpful. Things we can apply to pretty much any card, any style to take it to the next level. I’m going to bookmark this page so I can come back to it if I’m feeling like something is missing in my card. Thanks!
