Trisha’s Fab Father’s Day Card!

Hi fellow crafters, I hope you are well! I wanted to share with you all how to make this Father’s Day card using the Nature’s Texture stamps and stencils.  For this card I used the Nature's Textures Hexagon Layering Stamp & Stencil set.  I made this card using a 5”x7” Kraft card blank. Taking a white piece of card, I cut it slightly shorter than 5”x7” so I could mount it onto the Kraft card once I had stamped my design.  There are...
