Today I'll show you Part 1 of Many Mates! Many mates is a very lovely bundle that has a background die that is to "die" for! Totally unique and very useful in many ways...
That large background die that is partially hidden by the stamp case actually covers the entire front of a card...today we're going to creat a fun card focusing on this die...be sure to pop back by on next Friday so you can see Part 2!
This set also has some very useful greeting and is some fun scripts..It's Your Day, You're Just so Fabulous, and Just Thinking of You ...along with other frequently used greetings. You get double bang for your buck with this bundle.
I'll give you the simple steps to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.
