The cards that I make for the men in my life usually end up being pretty simple designs. The cards I created for this video are an example of that, they: are really easy to put together, require minimal supplies, and are straight forward and to the point. Of course, you could change up the colors and sentiments to make them appropriate for just about anybody. ☺️

Also, if you visit a store and what you want is out of stock, be sure and ask to be notified by email when the item is back in stock. It’s usually quite quick and always worth the wait. 😉
Thanks for watching!
Remember, if mailing a card with layers and embellishments in the United States, be sure and buy “non-machinable” postage so your cards don’t get smooshed in the USPS postal machines.
If you try this technique, be sure and share your artwork with us on the @ladymichellecreates Facebook page.
Thanks for spending time with me!
Blessings & Hugs,
