Friday 5 April 2024


I've been having so much fun with the Hot Air Balloon Bundle and the coordinating products from the Lighter than Air Suite.  One of my favourite fun folds is the Faux Step Fold Card.  I always struggle with cutting and scoring a single sheet of cardstock to make one of these cards so the faux step card method is perform for me!
