I thought this was the perfect time to break out my Owl Punch! The inside is made using printer paper so that it has almost no bulk. So, when you open it, it’s very unexpected.

Hi All! Hope your holidays are very merry! I’m taking a break from holiday cards to work on some tags. This design will work for pretty much any occasion. I used the Filled With Love set by Simon Says Stamp. Yes, it’s a Valentine’s Day set! I got it last year and have used it on way more than Valentine’s Day cards. It’s just one of those great versatile sets. So, if you’re thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day, I recommend {Read More}
