Clean & Simple Tuesday Video, Masculine Ombre Birthday Card


Hi friends. I know it's late but I started this early, promise. Today I'm continuing on with my Clean and Simple Tuesday series with a video on how to make a card with an ombre effect. This is a very cool masculine card. I used a wood frame which is something I usually don't work with but since I had it, I thought that I would give it a try. 

I have a video for you that I hope you like and I also hope that you enjoy this card too! And, the video is only 15 minutes long!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today and God bless you!
