Or bother with fancy stamping and coloring. And there is certainly no time for fancy folding or layering embellishments. So 60 second cards are basic cards that serve a purpose and not much more.

The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page

Hi dear friends! Today I want to share with you The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page.
