4CA47B79 B1EF 400F A07C A5CBF917A222

This month's tutorial features a really unique stamp and die bundle. The Hats Off bundle is like none I have seen, and it is perfect for creating masculine nature and sports inspired cards. The tutorial below gives it a bright, fun, feminine twist that I think you'll enjoy.

Accessorize your summer with the perfect hat! Whether you want sporty team colours, natural outdoorsy, or casual chic you can create the perfect look for summer and all year with the Hats Off bundle!

This bundle has such a unique style. The dies add a realistic embossed stitching look on the hats and patches. This is one you will want to add to your stash. Just picture all the ways you can customize cards for kids, guys, coaches, and so much more!
