Have you taken the plunge into digital stamping? After you see how easy this adorable card is to make, you will think about diving in and giving it a try. Digital images are so easy to re-size to the size you need them. Making cards can be a breeze!
Pull out your markers, chalks, colored pencils, gelatos, and even your glitter. Just think how much fun you can have creating with your digital images.
