Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

Quick and easy cards…who likes them?  I do!  There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front.  Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together.  This is the result.  I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card
