LASER CUT PAINTED HARVEST CARD
Have you discovered the beauty of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin? If not, I think you will be surprised at how quickly you can create a stunning card with them. I'm excited to show them to you in this tutorial.
The tin is gorgeous and perfect for gift-giving and stylish storage. The set also includes 12 Very Vanilla laser-cut cards and 12 scallop-edged envelopes. Even better, they are one of the retiring items that are on sale! I'm also going to miss the Painted Harvest stamp set, so I thought I'd combine them and retiring In-Colours to wish them all a fond farewell. Enjoy!
