Hey stampers! Today I’ve got a fresh, new cardmaking idea for you.
Of course, anything purple is my favorite, but you can choose your preferred color to make this card.
If you love sending handmade birthday cards as much as I do, I think this design will fit the bill! This project actually uses one of Stampin’ Up!’s “bundles. When you purchase the bundle, you’ll save 10% over what you would pay for the individual stamp set and detailed edgelit dies.
Below are the instructions and, if you need any supplies to make this card, you can purchase them HERE.
