Hello Stamping Friends,

Thank you so much!
It is that time of year again when we start a new club rotation and we introduce a brand new Annual Catalog that goes live May 4! Accordingly, my catalog launch will be on that same day – Tuesday, May 4th.
It will be an open house from 10-7 to accommodate as many schedules as possible.
Well, we must do the traditional:
- In Color Swatch sheet
- Bookmark for our catalogs
- Easy Make and Take with one or two new products
- Door Prize Drawings every two hours- must be present to win; 12am, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm
- Raffle Bag – entries earned for each $10 in an order, completing the scavenger hunt/crossword, and purchasing entries for $2.50, you do NOT have to be present to win this.
Of course, Sal, there will be chocolate and other fun snacks.
A demonstrator who buys a beautiful Stampin’ Up! lunch bag and then fills it with goodies – that’s who!
Let’s look at this month’s club cards for those who have kits and need the instructions or those who want to recreate cards like them!
Peek A Boo Card
Here is the Youtube video: (Did you know you can go to the settings and increase the speed?)
Thanks to Dawn Griffith for these dimensions.
- Base: Basic White, 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
- Using the 2nd Largest Oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, fold the Basic White and cut ovals on the right hand side through both front and back. My ovals are 1/2″ down from the top to the top edge of the framelit, 3/4″ up from the bottom to the bottom edge of framelit and 2 1/4″ from the right side of the Basic White to the left hand side of the framelit.
- Front: Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP), 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
- Inside: Hydrangea Hill DSP, 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 (minus a hair on the horizontal side to take into account the score line)
- Using your Oval Framelit and a sticky note to hold the DSP in place on the Basic White, cut an oval in the front DSP and another oval on the inside DSP. SAVE the cutout from the inside to glue on the mechanism.
- Mechanism A: Highland Heather, 4 1/4 X 5 3/4, scored on the long side at 5 1/2
- Mechanism B: Highland Heather, 4 1/4 X 3, scored on the short side at 2 3/4
- Fold and burnish well the 1/2″ tabs on mechanisms A & B. Attach A to the left side of the front DSP with the tab to the inside and attach B to the inside DSP on the right hand side with the tab hidden on the inside. Note: I used tear and tape and rolled the tiny bit of excess tape back onto itself to prevent any glue from catching on the mechanism.
- Use a pencil to outline the oval on the Highland Heather and stamp your front greeting. I used Blackberry Bliss to give a darker purple color and the friendship greeting in ‘Grace’s Garden’ stamp set.
- Stamp the greeting on the oval cutout for the inside; I used the friend greeting from ‘Heartfelt’
- After attaching the mechanisms, glue your inside DSP to the Basic White and then the front DSP to the Basic White. Note: put the glue on the white not the front DSP because that piece is larger than the Basic White. The small mechanism should go into the middle with the large mechanism at the back.
- Use your pencil again to draw the oval for the inside on the mechanism that peeks in when you open the card. Glue the oval cut out in place
- Embellish with a little piece of ‘Gorgeous Grape Ribbon’ 2 X 1 1/2, two blackberry bliss punched butterflies, 3 pastel pearls and 1 butterfly gem (can you find it hiding on the left hand side?)
Open Book Easel Card
I was so delighted with how this card turned out and patting myself on the back but then had a humbling experience as I tried to do the Facebook Live and the sound echoed and the lighting didn’t work…… The silver lining to the mishaps was that I went to Youtube and learned how to edit a Youtube video so I could cut out the first eight minutes of echoing to make it a little easier for you to endure. Unfortunately, I couldn’t fix the lighting so it still has a bit of a glare – so sorry for that less than professional presentation. If you viewed the first video you see I had both lighting and sound corrected. I made better notes for set up next time.
Thank you to Tina Zinck of the Serene Stamper for teaching me how to make an Open Book Easel Card.
- Base: Misty Moonlight, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. Fold in half and then Z fold the 2 1/8″ score line
- Bottom Layer at top of easel and the layer at the base of easel (X2): Brass Foil in the ‘World of Good’ DSP, 5 1/8 X 1 7/8, watch the direction of the words as you glue the pieces to the base
- Easel Stand: Misty Moonlight, 5 1/8 X 7/8 and a DSP strip of compasses, 4 7/8 X 5/8; Note the Misty Moonlight has no border but the compasses DSP does have a border
- Globe and Stand: Misty Moonlight, 2 1/4 X 2 1/4, Die cut circle with the circle in the World Map Dies, Use Brass Foil 2 1/4 X 3 1/4 to die cut the globe and the stand
- Book Layers:
- Cinnamon Cider: 5 1/8 X 3 7/8; score at 2 9/16 – one 16th mark past the half mark
- Designer Series Paper: (Beige with words) 4 7/8 X 3 5/8; score at 2 7/16, one 16th mark less than the half mark
- Cinnamon Cider: 4 5/8 X 3 3/8; score at 2 5/16, one 16th mark past the quarter mark
- Designer Series Paper: (Map) 4 3/8 X 3 1/8; score at 2 3/16, one 16th mark less than the quarter mark
- Banner: Cinnamon Cider, 1 X 3, Stamp with Memento Black and embellish with the Antiqued Corners
Curl each of your book layers. Break the fibers with the bone folder then wrap around the Take A Pick tool.
Place Tear and Tape on the middle of each book layer, burnish well, attach to its layer. Note: fold the layer in half to place so you can get it right on the score line of the next layer down.
Place glue dots on the edge of each layer and push the layer in toward the middle to maintain the curl before you push down on the glue dots. Hint: Use less curl if you are mailing and a little more if you are hand delivering.
Place Tear and Tape on the easel top base at 1/16 down from top and over 1/16 on the right and the same on the left and all the way down on the top easel layer to mount the book to your easel base. Mount your book recurling that last layer if needed.
Use glue dots to mount the globe to the bottom of the top page of the book checking placement so that the globe fits correctly on the base.
Stamp your greeting on the Cinnamon Cider strip, embellish with the antique corners and mount with glue dots.
I used white embossing and “Congratulations on this new beginning” on the inside.
That, my friends, is the second of our two club cards for April. May is the catalog launch and then we start a new club rotation in June so contact me if you are interested and I will answer any questions you may have. Text 303-815-0838.
Remember: the World of Good Suite and all its individual products (page 24-26 of the Annual Catalog) are retiring and most have a huge discount right now so head to the online store to purchase them. The Butterfly punch I used on the first card is also retiring (Butterfly Duet, pg. 165) and it is great for quick embellishments in the color of your choice. Butterflies are always good for those times when we get a shadow or smudge on our artwork!
Have a wonderful day!
SAL, Share A Love of stamping

Hello Stamping Friends,
New hostess code starting March 31: DJRYFBKM
I have another Mystery Card for you today. Our club members (and guests) meet by Zoom on the last Tuesday of each month and share the cards we have been making along with the swaps we have received, and then some choose to do a Mystery Card challenge. I send out the card cuts ahead of time, everyone chooses colors and papers and greetings and then I walk them through how to put the Mystery Card together.
Mystery Card Challenge #11 click on the blue for a printable pdf
It is a pocket card!
Here are the ones I made followed by the cards made by those who joined me on Zoom!
I used the Tasteful Labels Dies for the front greeting layers with a Thank You from the ‘Handsomely Suited’ stamp set. The Wishing You The Very Best greeting is in the ‘Friends Are Like Seashells’ stamp set and the STAMPING sentiment is in the ‘Stamping Your Way To The Top’ stamp set. The Designer Series Paper is from a Sale A Bration (SAB) 12 X 12 paper pack. The papers were just beautiful this year. I hope you have more than one pack in your stash!
Joy Meadows used a different DSP from the same 12 X 12 SAB pack and used Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I like how she put a little piece of the ribbon on the top of the insert!
Sharon Fincham added extra layers and used the greeting from ‘Hey Girlfriend’ with beautiful Organdy Striped Ribbon!
Lori Moore used paper from a different pack of Sale A Bration DSP and cut flowers from the Pretty Perennials stamp set (with dies) in the Jan-June mini catalog and layered the flowers on a Tasteful Labels die.
Jo Brooks had a designer series paper with a white back so she stamped a design to add beauty! She used the Story Label punch for the greeting.
Yes, Sal, we do and they are carrying forward in the new catalog that starts May 4! There is a wonderful pack of Baker’s Twine in the new catalog as well.
Yes, again! It is a privilege of being a demonstrator and we will be able to preorder from the new annual catalog April 1 so we can prepare for our events.
Would any of you like to join our team of ‘Carin Crafters’ and get all your supplies at a discounted price plus enjoy the many other benefits of being a demonstrator – like being the first to see the new catalogs and being able to attend special events put on by Stampin’ Up! (virtual this year but fun travels in the past!). You will have access to the demonstrator website where Stampin’ Up! gives you all the information you need to be a successful business demonstrator or a well informed hobby demonstrator.
Also, contact me if you would like to be part of a club. Text 303-815-0838 or email email@example.com. We start a new rotation in May for the current club and there are openings, or you can start a club with your own group of friends. I design cards for each of your parties and we meet virtually or in person to make the cards together.
Thank you for giving me a bit of your time. I hope the cards have inspired you to start creating!
New hostess code starting March 31: DJRYFBKM. Use this code if your order is under $150 and we won’t leave free dollars on the table. If your order is $150 or more you will earn the free hostess dollars yourself so you don’t need a hostess code.
Have a wonderful day!

Hello Stamping Friends,
Hostess code for March: A3VBV4QZ
On the last Tuesday of each month I have a Zoom meeting to chit chat with one another, talk about the swap cards we made and do a Mystery Card Challenge. Those challenges started up during COVID and were a fun way to craft together on Zoom.
Good question, Sal! We have one last rotation on this club in April (retirement list!) and then we start all over with a new rotation and new plans for meeting depending on the wishes of the members. Give me a shout out if you want to be part of the new club!
January’s Mystery Card is a great one for using up those little strips of paper you have left from a 6 X 6 DSP after you use a 5 X 4 piece for the front of a card.
Lucille made a fun card with bumble bees on blue! So cute !!
Jo made an Easter card! The greeting is from ‘Fable Friends’ stamped and punched with the ‘Story Label’ punch.
I made a thank you card using scraps left over from the Hydrangea Hill paper and Flirty Flamingo:
I decided to embellish it a little and add another quarter sheet of black on the back of the Flirty Flamingo. I just shaved off a little on each of the sides to give a slight border. I used Versa Mark to make a little flower using a stamp from the ‘Lots of Heart’ stamp set. The Matte Black Dots are on page 11 of the JJ Mini. The scalloped Basic White is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The ‘thank you’ and the ‘you’re all heart’ are both from the ‘Lots of Heart’ stamp set.
Since I had left over Sale A Bration DSP from another project, I made another card using the same ‘Lots of Heart’ stamp with all the little dots, I connected the dots to make a smiley face and stamped greetings from the same stamp set. The ‘Thinking of You’ is from the ‘Happy Thoughts’ stamp set and punched out with the ‘Tailored Tag’ punch.
The ‘Lots of Heart’ stamp set is so versatile you won’t want to label it as just a valentine stamp set. For this next card I used Night of Navy for the base and background layers and I used the edge of my Night of Navy marker to barely color the edge of the greeting.
What a fun and simple card and those little strips of DSP won’t go to waste. Won’t you join us on our next Zoom meeting with its Mystery Card Challenge? I will include you in the Zoom invitation if you will send me your email. Text 303-815-0838
Hostess code for March: A3VBV4QZ
SAL, Stamp A Lot this lovely March
Hello Stamping Friends,
March’s hostess code is: A3VBV4QZ
Check out these beautiful swap cards made by the club members and come back tomorrow to see the Mystery Card #10 that is a fun part of being in club. Each month I make cards and deliver kits to the club members; then we gather on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:30 via Facebook Live to construct the kits. On the last Tuesday of the month we meet via Zoom to share our swap cards, chat a bit, and do a Mystery card challenge. I send the instructions for the card and then each person gathers the supplies and we put the cards together on the Zoom meeting. Each person chooses their own color of cardstock and designer series paper and it is so fun to see all the different cards made with the same set of measurements.
I almost forgot! We are ready to celebrate and get together again. Since March is a non-club month I am having my first in-house stamping event to stamp two cards with the Hey Birthday Chick bundle and two cards with the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle – (available to purchase March 2). Space is limited to four people but there are four sessions. Stampers will each be seated on one side of a large table so we are still distanced from each other. Cost is $15. Text me at 303-815-0838 if you are interested. I can take Paypal, Venmo, Cash or Check.

We had six members swap and myself. Let’s start with Lori’s ‘Everything Is Rosy’ Gatefold Card. There was a ‘Rosy Suite’ that you could purchase last year and after it retired, the whole suite was in the clearance rack. I hope some of you were able to get this amazing set of products. The outside sentiment, flowers and Everything Is Rosy DSP are all from the suite. The inside sentiment is from the current ‘So Sentimental’ stamp set. Night of Navy is the base cardstock.
Next we have Jo’s card using the Flight of Fancy and Heartfelt stamp sets with gray for the base and a sponged white Layering Oval as well as Stitched Shapes and Be Mine Stitched Framelits. Inside has “so lucky to have a friend like you” in pink.
Suzi used the current JJ Mini Flowering Cactus Product Medley for her swap card on a layer of white card stock embossed with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder. This medley has dies, twine, DSP-designer series paper, a lovely cactus stamp set and die-cut felt sheets. See page 9 of the JJ mini. There is also a refill kit!
Joy used the oh so beautiful heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies which carried over to the Annual Catalog! If you were in club a couple years ago you will remember this beautiful DSP. Hopefully you have some in your stash.
Lucille’s card uses paper that is quite similar to our Forever Greenery DSP. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up’s Quite Curvy Stamp set and the hearts are from her Framelits Heart Collection.
Sharon has outdone herself once again with the Wreath Builder Dies and the Arrange A Wreath stamp set. I didn’t notice that little heart with the love cut out until I saw her card. I had to go see those dies (pg. 173).
My card uses the ‘Floral Heart Dies’ In the JJ MIni page 12 and is a case of Kylie Bertucci with a bit different pink. The sentiment is from the ‘Always In My Hear’t coordinating stamp set. I die cut the floral heart in basic black and then cut another in Flirty Flamingo, popped the pink heart up with dimensionals over top of the black heart and then ‘paper pieced’ the little flowers with the Flirty Flamingo sections. The key is to use the double back adhesive on the card stock and a dryer sheet to keep the pieces together. Stay tuned for a future video on paper piecing.
- Base: Basic Black, 11 X 4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2
- Layer: Basic White, 5 1/4 X 4
- Floral Heart: Basic Black, 4 1/2 X 4 1/4, place the cardstock on a piece of double back adhesive sheet 4 X4 1/4, die cut with the Floral Heart Die
- Pink Heart and Flowers: Flirty Flamingo, cut a full piece of the Floral Heart Die and paper piece on top of the black or Die cut the heart with a 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 piece of Flirty Flamingo and (2) 1 X 1 pieces cutting just the flower portion. Use double back adhesive on the flowers and die cut on top of a dryer sheet to keep the pieces together.
- Greeting: Basic Black, 1 X 2 1/2, stamp the greeting in Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Hint: stamp your greeting at the top corner of your rectangle then fussy cut the bottom and sides.
- Embellish: Various, I used black ribbon, pink ribbon, or black ribbon on a Flirty Flamingo strip and three rhinestones
In the Floral Heart Dies is a cut out for just the flower so I cut it once in black and then again in Flirty Flamingo placing both on the adhesive sheets and a dryer sheet before cutting. The little hearts are in the coordinating ‘Always In My Heart’ stamp set. Purchased together, you would get a 10% discount. The Happy Valentines Day is from the ‘Heartfelt’ stamp set currently in the Annual catalog page 75. As catalogs retire, you can look at the date of the post and go to the catalog tab to find the catalog I refer to and see other examples.
Thank you for spending time with me today. Tomorrow we will look at Mystery Card #10 and the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle that is being offered as a special in March.

Hello Stamping Friends,
Several years back during Sale-A-Bration we had a very popular stamp set called Hey Chick! Stampin’ Up! has brought it back –with dies! Not only are they offering dies for that stamp set they are now offering dies for the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set in the JJ mini! Take a look see…
There really are chickens with feathers on their head. This picture is a Polish Crested Chicken.
Isn’t it cute!!
Those dies are definitely fun! My favorite is the corn stalk, or maybe the cut out Happy Birthday or maybe the chicken wire or the fence or that cool die that looks like twisted crepe paper to decorate for a party or…….
Yes, and because I am a demonstrator, I could order them a month before they were available to the public. Want to join my team of Carin’ Crafters? We have a new preorder starting this month for a special butterfly suite you won’t want to miss. Click Here To Join
Here are a few samples from the home office:
But wasn’t it fun! Shall we hire chickens to hold down our helium balloons at the next party?
Not a good idea. Thank you friends for spending some of your time with me today. I hope you are smiling by now!
February host code is: TMARBUUM. Use this code for club orders or if your order is under $150. At $150 you will get the hostess rewards yourself. Under $150 the dollars only get credited to someone if you use a hostess code. Contact me to join an ongoing club or gather a few friends to create one of your own. firstname.lastname@example.org

Do you remember Stampin’ Up! ever bringing back a stamp that was retired years ago?
Hello Stamping Friends,
Let’s have some fun with Lions (dandelions) and Dragons (dragonflies)!
January’s hostess code is : UEEZKD2D for use if your order is under $150.
Yesterday I was live on Facebook with January’s club cards. Each club member had kits with all the supplies so this time my presentation was different with just the construction of the card without going from the beginning to the end and listing all the sizes of the card cuts, so this blog post will fill in the gaps!
Dragonfly Z Fold Club Card Introducing The Dandy Garden Suite
This suite is on Page 25 of the JJ catalog (Jan-June mini)!
Base: Bumble Bee, 5 1/2 X 10 7/8, Lay the base horizontally at the 7 1/4″ mark and cut down 1 1/8 inch, then score the rest of the way.
Secondly, mark the left hand side down from the top at 3 3/8″ and cut the base from 1 1/8″ to the 3 3/8″ mark. (Note: the tip of the cut is at 1 1/8″).
Score the base at 3 5/8″ from the left. You now have two score lines: one at 3 5/8′ and one at 7 1/4″.
Your base is done!
Let’s mount our little dragonflies and the bumblebees on little strips of window sheets.
Window sheet strips (X2): 3/8″ X 1 1/4″
Bumblebees: Use the Dandy Wishes Dies little Bumblebee die to cut two bumblebees from the Dandy Garden DSP (Designer Series Paper). Color the back of the bumblebees with Mossy Meadow. Place glue dots on the top of one of the window sheets, one on the front and one glue dot on the back, and then adhere your bumblebees back to back. The “Garden Wishes” stamp set has a bumblebee image to stamp if you would rather have a stamp set than a die set.
Dragonflies: The Dandy Garden DSP has sheets that match up with the Dragonfly punch (which is bundled with the ‘Dragonfly Garden’ stamp set for a 10% discount) and you will punch out two matching small dragonflies and mount them on your window sheet strip with a glue dot on the window sheet front and on the back.
Back Layer of the Z fold: Dandy Garden DSP, full rectangle – 3 3/8″ wide X 5 1/4″ tall. The DSP is directional.
Middle Layer of the Z fold (which is on the back of the base): Dandy Garden DSP, Start with a piece of DSP, 3 3/8″ wide X 4 1/8″ tall, Mark down 1 1/8″ on the right hand side and cut from the tip of the left hand side to the mark on the right hand side. Flip your base over and place your bumblebee where he will be on top of a dandelion at the back when you fold the card flat. Use a glue dot to position the bumblebee and then adhere the DSP.
Front Layer of the Z fold: Dandy Garden DSP, 3 3/8″ wide X 3″ tall to start. Mark 1 1/8 ” down -this time on the left hand side and cut a diagonal from the tip of the 3″ to the 1 1/8″ mark. Before adhering, wrap your linen thread around the DSP and tie a bow.
Note: On both the middle and the front layer, you can place your DSP where it will go, and make your marks for your diagonal cuts without measuring so that if your diagonal cut is not quite perfect your layer will be and will have a nice 1/8″ border.
Greeting Border: Bumblebee, 3 1/4″ X 3 1/4″, cut with the Largest Square Stitched Shape Die (2 5/8″)
Greeting Top Layer: Whisper White, 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″, cut with the 2nd largest Square Stitched Shape Die (2 1/8″). I stamped the greeting from Dragonfly Garden, “May Good Things Grow All Year Long”, in green, and then did a stamp off of the dragonfly cluster across the greeting in Bumble Bee ink.
Embellishments: One little ladybug mounted with a glue dot. 16″ of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim.
Alternative Cut: Diagonal Z fold with the diagonal from the back to the front.
The base of this card uses just 1/2 of a piece of cardstock so you can make two cards from one sheet.
Base: Bumble Bee, 5 1/2″ X 10 7/8″ scored at 3 5/8″ and 7 1/4″ with a diagonal cut from left to right at the 5 1/2″ cut down to 1″ from the bottom on the right.
Note: I have a 1/8″ border on the right, left and tops but did not have a border on the bottom.
Back Layer: DSP, 3 3/8″ wide X 3 1/4 ” tall, cut diagonally left to right from the 3 1/4″ tip to 1 3/8″ down from the top.
Back Greeting: Shimmer White, 3 3/8″ wide X 1 7/8″ tall, For this greeting I stamped the “Thank You For Your Kindness” from Dragonfly Garden in blue and then added a punched out dragonfly.
Middler Layer– goes on the back of the base: DSP, striped in this case, 3 3/8″ wide X 3 7/8″ tall , diagonally cut from the right to the left from the tip to left marked at 1 1/2 “. Tip: place the top of your layer with a nice 1/8” border and trim the bottom since it is flush to the bottom.
Front Layer: 3 3/8″ wide X 2 3/8″ tall, cut diagonally from the left to the right marked at 1 3/8″ from the top. Now wait — don’t adhere yet.
Dragonfly: Dandy Garden DSP, punch two large dragonflies and mount them with glue dots on a strip of Window Sheet 3/8″ X 1 1/4″. Use another glue dot to adhere the window sheet to the front of the base.
After the Dragonfly is adhered – adhere your front layer.
Embellishments: Die cut a bumble bee from DSP and adhere to front; adhere a ladybug trinket with a glue dot to front; tie a little bow with 8″ of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim and adhere it to the back.
Which do you like better? A rectangle back or a diagonal back? Leave a comment with your vote by January 25 for a chance to win the ladybug trinkets!
Sand and Sea Club Cards Introducing The Sand & Sea Suite
This suite is on page 41 of the JJ catalog.
I used the Whale Of A Time Designer Series Paper instead of the paper in the suite so I had a smaller background behind the shells. The cards shown above have three different backgrounds from the Whale of a Time DSP:
Which do you like best? #1) little fishes amongst the seaweed, #2) seahorses, #3) the coral reef
Leave a comment with your vote by January 25 for a chance to win The Opal Rounds embellishments!
Base: Pretty Peacock, 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, Scored at 4 1/4″
Layer 1: Whale of a Time DSP, 5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″
Layer 2: Garden Green, Start with 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ and cut with the largest Seaside Seashell Die to make a base.
Layer 3: Granny Apple Green, Start with 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ and cut with the largest Seaside Seashell Die, then cut out all the little vines and glue them to the Garden Green base. This gives you a nice contrast of greens. Note: you can cut into the seashells to give more area to adhere the vines since the seashells will be glued on top.
Layer 4: Pearlescent Specialty Paper, Start with 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ and cut with the largest Seaside Seashell Die, then cut out all the seashells and glue them on the base over the greenery.
Greeting: Shimmery White, Start with 1 X 2 1/2″, stamp the greeting, and then cut with the rectangle stitched die to make a perfectly sized rectangle. Cut one end, stop halfway, reposition the die on the other end and cut that half. I demonstrate this in the video.
Inside: Shimmery White, 5 3/8″X 4 1/8″
Inside strip: DSP cut from the same piece as the background, 5/8″ X 4 1/8″
Here are two examples of what I did on the inside:
So you can vote and really see the backgrounds here are up close images of the cards:
#1 – Little fishes
#2 – seahorses
#3 – Coral Reef
Remember it is Sale A Bration time with free products for each $50 or $100 order!!
