Kylie’s International Blog Highlights May 2023: Tropical Leaf Bundle with Bright & Beautiful DSP
Here’s a bright, cheery, simple gatefold card featuring the Online Exclusive stamp set and punch called Tropical Leaf Bundle. This card also showcases the Bright & Beautiful DSP from the new 23-24 Annual Catalog. I played with new and returning colors from our recent color refresh.
Here’s the inside using the same DSP and stamp set, but you can substitute any stamp set and DSP to easily make your own version of this fun card. Watch the YouTube video at this link.
