His 'n Hers Cards, with Bonnie

I've been eying Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress papers for a while and I knew it would be the perfect paper line to use for this class.
The paper lends itself to be feminine as well as masculine and if you are like me, you never have enough masculine cards on hand.
The cards are detailed but simple.  You will learn how to make a stepped card and take home a template to create different styles of this card.  The sentiments can be changed to suit any occasion.
Vintage elegance!
