Handmade Thinking of You Card

Handmade Thinking of You Card

Today I’m sharing a current favourite of mine, a handmade Thinking of You Card.  Before we move on let’s chat about the stamp set really quick.

I am using Butterfly Gala stamp set from Stampin’ up!   I LOVE this stamp set and coordinating punch, and I’ve also paired this project with the Be Mine Stitched Dies from the current  Occasion Catalogue.

Lucky for me this stamp set will be in the upcoming new Annual Catalogue.
