Can I just say your card is just gorgeous! I love those white roses and all the die work behind the pinecone. Just amazing my friend!
Thank you so much Glenda!
Thank you so much PaperKutz
I admire all your work and this card is no exception! I have a question that I hope you do not mind answering…in your instructions on how tomato the card, you mention you glue the gold paper onto heavy cardboard, what is the reason for this?Thanks in advance.
Hi Betty-Jane. I use heavy cardboard to add some depth to my cards. It is cheaper than using foam tape! I hope this helps.
What a great idea! I agree, foam tape is pricey. Thank you for this money saving tip, 😊
