Stampin Up! Darling Details Just a Note card

Happy Friday friends! I’m back with another card made during this week’s Class To Go. I love embossing folders and find them hard not to use on my cards. The Basics 3D Embossing Folders are some of my favorites. They are an Online Exclusive so you won’t find them in the catalog. Which is true for a portion of Stampin Up! products this year. I send out updates in my newsletter for when and what to expect throughout the year. If you aren’t on my email list and would like to be kept in the know, you can sign up here.
