Simple Z-fold Valentine Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s Day – it just seems a few days that we were celebrating Christmas!

Today’s card uses the Touched My Heart Stamp Set which is one of the sets you can get for free for hosting a party or if you place an order for $150 of Stampin UP goodies! I have been surprised on how versatile it has been, it has a beautiful heart stamp with leaves twisting and curling around it just perfect for Valentine or maybe a wedding or anniversary card. I have paired it with the Meant to Be Stamp set for my greeting.

Thanksgiving Slimline Easel Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers. As an ex-pat Brit now living in North Texas, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that I was familiar with until we moved here just over 19 years ago.

Today’s card in another of the popular slimline fold cards, this time an easel fold card using some of the pretty autumn themed products in the 2020 August – December mini catalog……………. and showing you how it all goes together with a video tutorial.

Thanksgiving Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.
