Last week I shared an archive project that featured this same stamp set Paisley & Posies. This week, the card was designed more for our guys! With colors selected with the guy recipient in mind.
Lots of you ask about how to come up with card ideas for giving to our guys. And sometimes it just comes to keep it simple, clean lines, and color choices. I hope you enjoy the demonstration, and the project details shared below.
