Hi Jessica, I have been making cards for years. When I found your web site you have made me enjoy making cards again. The way you explain how to make and easy short cuts are great. Thanks again, Susie
Hi Susie, I am so happy to hear that I could help you enjoy making cards again! Thank you so much for sharing that.
GREAT ideas ! Thank you ! I just love making cards & I have so many males in my family , sons , grandsons & great-grandsons !
You’re welcome! I’m so glad you liked these ideas.
I have been struggling to get motivated to make more cards for my daughter to give to the many males in her extended family. This was perfect, allowing me to use supplies that I already have. I love the simple Happy Birthday stamp. Do you know if it is still available and from which company? Thanks!
So happy I could help Gayle! This Happy Birthday stamp was from a Stampin’ Up! set that is no longer available. The closest “Happy Birthday” they have now is in the Lovely & Lasting stamp set: https://bit.ly/3QvPZs7
