4 Lovely Layers Card Template #19

It’s time to play with ALL the new Designer Series Papers in the September – December 2023 Mini Catalog! Are you ready? A perfect way to learn about new pattern papers is to use them with a card template. Following a card “recipe” is a great way for me to try out new products without becoming overwhelmed. I created a new card template (#19) that I am calling 4 Lovely Layers because of how well it showcases different patterns and designs when using coordinating packages of Designer Series Paper.
