I am into “cute,” but never thought about using geometric designs. They are gorgeous in the scrumptious color selections used here. My favorite was the acetate sewn over the face of the card and making it a “shaker” card. Thanks for these many terrific ideas.

Dawn Jones September 4, 2017 - 5:21 AM

I love the new dies and can’t wait to see how the artist’s use tgem.
