Let's Eat Cake

Friday 23 February 2024


Each month I design three cards that are part of a Make and Take Kit I send to customers who place an order of $50 or more with me.  It's fun creating these cards and even more fun when I send the package out.  I include a package of embellishments if the order is $75 or more.  This month I used the Heartfelt Hexagon bundle for my cards along with the Just Kiddin' Designer Series Paper.  Love how they turned out.
