I used MFT… Continue reading Spring Brushstroke Blooms

I'm a big fan of cover dies. The Reverse Confetti 2-way Stripes cover panel die is really versatile. By keeping some or all of the stripes in the die cut, it offers lots of design possibilities. Please join me on the Seven Hills Crafts blog to read more about this card.
