I was in Joann a week or so ago when they were having a customer appreciation sale.  All their Spellbinders dies were 40% off, and I had a coupon for 25% off everything (sale items included).  I had been looking at this Ornate Artisan Tags set for a while -- and this was the time to buy it!



My second card is a Tri-fold card.  There are many different types of tri-fold cards, and I had not tried this particular version before.



Check out the rest of the team's cards and be sure to comment for a chance to win a free set.
