Holy guacamole! Bring your cards to life with taco, burrito, and avocado stamps found in the Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta Stamp Set. Add a bit of color and a cheeky pun, and you’ll have the most appetizing birthday cards, party invites, or “just because” cards your friends have ever seen.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love the colors in this card! When I started out, I was using primary colors, but there was a piece of the Hello , Irresistible Designer Paper sitting on my desk and I thought “hmmmm, wonder what that would look like?” Turns out, it looks great and I fell in love with the soft coral colors!
