Many people are intimidated with interactive cards because they think they are difficult and complicated. We beg to differ. Lori has created an easy card class that is a basic interactive class by just using folded elements. You will be doing four cards a birthday, thinking of you, and two 'love you'. There is lots of die cuts and paper piecing but no coloring. Join the fun and create these easy fun folding cards. Bring your basic kit and check the website for any other supplies you may need.
