Facebook Live - 2/14/24 - Sweet Thoughts Memories & More

 Today I made a card without stamping anything!  This card uses the Sweet Thoughts Memories and More card pack and the Sweet Thoughts Memories and More cards and envelopes.  I wanted to share these with you now because you can get the cards and envelopes for free until the end of Feb. 2024. 


There really aren't any dimensions for this card.  The only thing I trimmed were the 2 cards on the right - I cut them in half so they are each 1 1/2 x 4. 

You can find the video demonstration HERE

These cards were also made with the memories and more card pack - no stamping needed. All of these were designed by my friend Kay.
