Daisy Delight Cards ~ Stampin’ UP!

Yesterday I shared Stampin’ UP!’s Bonus Days ~ spend $50 in August to get a $5 coupon to redeem in September – so my thought was – what could you buy for around that amount and be able to create some pretty cards.  A little stroll thru the catalog and there it was on page 123 – ‘You Can Make It’ ~ Daisy Delight Cards .

Stampin’ UP! have put together a group of supplies, notecards with envelopes, Daisy Delight stamp set, Daisy Punch, 2 full size ink pads and a clear block ~ perfect for creating cards straight out of the box!
