So here is a slightly different book fold card and as I had to make a sympathy card recently, it is annual catalogue products I turned to. I wasn’t happy with the first version so stamped off in my video, which gives a better effect to set off the die cut.
I love jade greens with navy and thought the alternative of Bermuda Bay went well with the night of Navy and Blue and white of the Floral Boutique DSP.
