What a great collection to add to your stash for creating coordinating cards and tags, perfect for Mother’s Day or just to brighten someone’s day. Let us check it out.

Smiline Brighten Your Day Card

Simple and clean, this slimline card is perfect for any occasion. This card is so pretty with all its white space and how the Citrine Glimmer Foil pops off the white cardstock.

A2 Brighten Your Day Card

To keep things simple, I have kept the colors the same and left a lot of white space. By using the Create a Slimline Border Die Set, I was able to create a beautiful piece of paper lace. A simple edging can be created with the Perforated Insert Die.
