Mother’s Day Magic Card

In honor of Mother’s Day, I created a magical card using my Mother’s Day clear stamp set by Sizzix. The best way to explain the magic of this card is by sharing a little video. I’m rather new at this filming, editing, uploading process so I apologize for the quality but I think you can […]
