It is full of French paintings from 18th century china patterns, layered sentiments and bucolic scenes! This is truly a kit for all those who subscribe to our “beautiful in the making” style.

Next we have our Window Frame Card Making Kit where you’ll get everything you need to make 20 incredible, 3D step cards as well as 7 cutting dies to make your own once you have completed the set.

It includes pre-cut, scored patterned cards, die cut frames, gorgeous floral die cuts, fanciful foil flourishes and sentiment stickers to write your heartfelt message. If you signed up for auto ship for our Window Box Card kit in January, this will be on its way to you in June. The July 11th shows will be the only time this kit will be offered as a stand alone item.
