Leap Day Idea

Okay, so do you even know what Leap Day is??!! Every four years, February 29 appears on our calendars…..sort of like the Olympic Games. Now you might be thinking….why do I care about Leap Day? I am so glad you asked. I am going to be having a fun special at my online store. What is the special? You’ll have to come back on Tuesday to find out…unless…..

Put a rhinestone (119246) or pearl (119247) jewel on the top of the crown and you are finished!

You can also use this basic card layout as a template to design other handmade cards, changing up card stock, ink colors, and embellishments.
