Hello, my crafty friend! It’s craft time and I have a gatefold card featuring lawn fawn stamps that’s going to blow your mind! This card was inspired by Marine Simon and it was a treasure to make. This video is a little different than my usual video because it’s a Craft Talk video. If you’re new Becoming FAB, Craft Talk is a series where we talk about creativity, personal development, and mindfulness all while creating fabulous projects.
This project was inspired by two people: Marine Simon inspired the card and Kristina Werner inspired the topic. Which is, “Is it okay to copy another crafter’s work?” And I think my response might surprise you. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel. Also, be sure to check out the step by step directions written below.
