I love nature and live near a wooded area and park, so needless to say, the Happier Than Happy Bundle was at the top of my list to order. The stamps are distinctive, which makes it easy to stamp cute images of a bear, an owl and a fox. Additionally, there are several small stamps to add “whimsy” to your card. This bundle is perfect to pair with other greetings that you may have from other stamp sets. Below, you will see a “feel better friends” added for a “get well” greeting. The matching Designer Series Paper, Happy Forest Friends provides a variety of “forest-like” images, off of which you can design your card. Add a little twill ribbon in either Sahara Sand or Old Olive and you have a darling card that anyone will love!
The video below provides the instructions. Further down in the post, are the measurements, supplies and written instructions. I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below and let me know which is your favorite!!
