Gotta love a 2 for 1 card, right? I hope you enjoyed this one. I am SO glad I bought the Plaid Builder dies! Talk about a versatile die set. I can use this all year long and create 2 great cards as I work. I’m thinking baby cards, masculine cards, Easter cards, birthday cards…. I can’t say enough about how I loved created these cards with this die. It’s just fabulous!
