  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Firstly I wanted to say how nice to meet you virtually. I have been watching your videos forever but just this year was intrigued to start getting serious about card making and want to thank you so much for giving me that confidence in knowing that anyone can do it – you say it all the time. I just love your values in every way and thank you for generously giving of your time and knowledge which is not easily forthcoming these days. I have missed you for the last week or so and was glad to know you were taking a well deserved break with your family and father-in-law. Really sorry about the passing of your mother-in-law and with all that happening you did videos during that sad time – thank you so very much. And I am so thrilled to see your latest post with these beautiful cards – you are amazing and certainly have been blessed in every way by God. Take care of yourself and your family too – you always tell us to take care. The Lord bless you abundantly. BTW I live in Victoria, Australia and am usually one of the early ones to catch your videos – thank you.

  2. Holy Moly, Jennifer!! Absolutely incredible cards…I love those layering dies!! Card design is so versatile! I will have to look thru my stash to see what I can come up with!! YOU are BLESSING!

  3. Awesome cards Jennifer.
    The look so intricate but are, thanks to your great video, simple to make.
    Thank you so much for showing, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I only have one die set from Birch Press, but it is beautiful when stacked. Wish I could afford more! Your tip for folding, scoring and cutting small pieces of card stock is a winner! I can’t tell you how many times I have struggled to fold a tiny strip of card stock. I always got lots of folds in the paper, but never where I wanted them.

  5. Great selection of dies, but the way you put it all together is above and beyond! Your colors, your layout, your embellishments: Amazing! I wish I could think like that! TFS!

  6. So beautiful! I love your unusual colour combinations, and I am always a fan of layered ornaments on Christmas cards! Thank you for the great ideas and inspiration.

  7. This comment isn’t about this current awesome blog or video, but just wanted to be sure you see my comment. First of all, I love everything you do and everything you share with us.

    This question has to do with your organization videos. In particular the stamp and die sets. I see where you put them under the individual companies, such as Lawn Fawn, Simon Says, etc., but how are they filed according to each stamp pocket behind these company tabs? Am anxious to get started on my organization. Thanks for what you do. Susan

  8. I am so in love with these cards, you have inspired me, can’t wait to get my order. I have purchased another Birch Press layering die that you recommended and I have use it a ton. I can see using the center of the Birch Press Grace dies for this card so many possibilities. Thank you for inspiring so many of us.

  9. AGAIN YOU WOW! US WITH YOUR CREATIVITY AND IDEAS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENTS WITH ALL OF US!

  10. I love this idea. I didn’t have the layered dies so used a decorative rectangle and stamped and colored on it. (For Kristina’s mail call). Came out so cute. You have the best ideas. I look forward to your next videos.
