Fancy Fold: Flourishing Phrases

flourishing-phrases-headerThis card was so much fun to make. The colors make me happy just looking at them. All the directions and cutting dimensions are listed below and I would jot them down in a book for future reference. In fact you should have a book with all the dimensions to all the cards and projects you make. Just a suggestion…
