Sharing Sweet Thoughts of Butterflies Card

DPP_032

This is a card I made for my monthly Stamp Club. It is a Bridge fold card. It makes a nice 3D card to stand on your mantle or table top. It folds nicely to fit into a standard envelope (5-3/4” x 4-3/8”) for mailing. The back of the card is where you can write your message.
