Simon Says Stamp - A2 Nesting Frames Birthday Card

Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! Birthdays have me thinking of cake, confetti and...glitter??? Why not, especially when you can make your own custom colored glitter cardstock.

You can buy an array of ready-made colored glitter cardstock but if I can save time, paper and money coloring my own for small die-cuts, then it's a no-brainer for me!
