Traci S. said...

Hi Karen!
I have a question as this is my first time visiting your blog and Gina K.for a while. I just came from the December, 2020 Challenge. You shared a gorgeous card that was very elegant! It was a rich red and gold card. Where will I find a video or instructions on how to make a card like that one, please? I couldn't find that anywhere!

I am very excited to check out your blog and other cards! Thank you for your help. My apologies for writing you here. I couldn't find another place to ask.
I am not sure what email I had when I first started, so I am including it here.


Greta said...

All wonderful cards! I really love the first one & the last one!
