Such an easy tutorial to follow! That's always welcome in my book. I really appreciate how this creates a large interior space for favorite stamps & or sentiments to behold upon opening.

This makes a beautiful card that is easy. I had my card with folds on the left.

Great card, what a fun fold! Can't wait to try it! I am curious, tho--you mentioned using a Dymo label maker for adding adhesive to the die-cuts. Which model would you recommend for that? (I have a "Letra Tag" label maker, but the paper it uses is too narrow.) Thanks!

Which tree stamp did you use from the Stamp Set? Thanks.

This makes a beautiful card. I have made this before and had the folds on the left. It could go either way and be gorgeous each time.

Just as an FYI, in my video I mention using a Demo Label Maker to turn the die-cuts into stickers. That was an oops on my part. I meant a Xyron machine. Sorry for any confusion. -Mary
