Easy Handmade Cards for Friends

Today we are making easy handmade cards for friends.  This sweet card uses just a wee bit of stamping, some die cutting and a stunning embossing folder.


Product Spotlight

Let me show you the main products we will be using to make our adorable card.  (The entire product list is below.)

It's the Well Said Bundle, the Tufted Embossing Folder and the Pocket stamp set and framelits:


The Well Said bundle is one of my favorites from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  This amazing bundle has words and sentiments in the stamp set, and then word dies as well as some beautiful floral dies.

When we pair this bundle with the Pocket stamp set and dies, you can make so many cards, not just this one.

Here is what we will be making today.  I love the color combination of this project with the Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.
