Red, White, & Blue Birthday Cards with Leanne

Happy July friends! This month is full of celebrations for my family. We have several birthdays including mine! The 4th of July holiday is also coming up in just a few days.

For this first one I’ve used lighter tones of red and blue which I think gives it a more whimsical vibe. This card design is an easy one to create with the Rainbow Square Die.

I’ve chosen to create a simple garden scene on a mini slimline card. Since this design is pretty easy to replicate, I’ll keep this post...

Hello there! Leanne here with you today. I have a cheerful winter card to share featuring images from Frosty Mornings. We’ve had lots of frosty mornings here already and it’s not even officially winter yet. So what’s better on a cold morning than a cup of hot coffee? …sharing it with a good friend! I love this image of the two sweet and stylish girls with their coffee cups. It’s such a great image, not much else is needed to add to the scene. So I kept it fairly simple. I used the Snowy Sky Scene die to create...
