If you’re new to stamping you might be wondering: How do stampers decide what size to make their cards? In my video below, I will show you the sizes of cards that I make the most, how to cut and score them, and which envelope to use for them.
At the end of the video, I’ll also show you how to stamp the beautiful butterfly from the Watercolor Wings stamp set. All the rest of the supplies you’ll need to make these cards are available for purchase HERE!
