Made With Love Designs Christmas Cards Review

I recently got offered the chance to receive and review some handmade Christmas cards from Made With Love Designs, and being the stationary and craft loving woman/girl/thing that I am how could I possibly have refused!

They asked me what kind of cards I liked and in no time at all I had a small box through the post containing two very lovely cards.

You can get any photo of your choice printed onto 12mm birch plywood, which is sustainably sourced, and what makes it truly unique is that the grain of the wood remains visible through Keep reading…
