A Tip from Barb

This is the perfect card sketch for whenever you have some pretty paper you’d like to highlight and need a quick and easy Fun Fold card! The key to this card design is to use a neutral paper on the main panel that highlights the stamped focal image. An easy peasy card without any stress – I love when my pretty paper can do the heavy lifting on my cards!😊
