The best way to make cards is to use different products together in new ways. This allows you to get more out of your supplies! Be sure to watch my video to see the many ways I add texture to my die cuts (or other card elements).

Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.
