Birthday Wishes with the Beautiful Nested Friends

Apr 15, 2023 | Gallery, More Birthday Cards | 0 comments

Here’s a card tutorial for you on this Friday afternoon!  I love the Nested Friends bundle.  Spring is in full swing where I live and I am sure enjoying all of the birds that are busy making nests and singing in my yard!

If you are interested in this bundle, now would be a great time to purchase it, because once our new Annual Catalog begins on May 2 – it  will be headed to the Online Exclusives – which means it won’t be in a catalog.

When it becomes part of our Online Exclusive Collection, the stamp set and dies will be sold separately, not as a bundle, nor at bundled price.  You will save 10% if you purchase it before the end of April!
