FLORAL SQUARES

09.23.21.Happiest btd Coral flowerI absolutely love this cute fun fold! using the Floral Square Dies and the All Squared Away stamp set.  At first glance, this set did not appeal to me, but when I starting seeing what others were creating, I realized this set was an absolute gem!  I chose Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight as my colors to coordinate with Bird Ballad DSP.  This card is so very very easy and fast to make.

Isn’t this a cute and cheerful card?  I’d love to receive it for my birthday!  And speaking of my birthday, I am offering a personal 20% Stampin’Up discount from October 3rd thru the end of October, 2021.  Several of these birthday cards in the cute SU acetate card boxes would make a great Christmas gift.  The acetate boxes hold up to 5 – 5 1/4 X 4 cards plus envelopes.

Don’t forget to let me know which cards you would like to make and which day you plan on coming – and remember your masks.  If you prefer Cards to Go, please be specific as to what you want.
