What an impressively folded card with a beautiful message inside! My children all loved to play with blocks so I love it that this card mimics them stacked. The directions are well written and there are plenty of pictures for us visual learners. The artisan has spent plenty of time including the details like inking the edges of the papers. I love the amount of texture and dimensionality included in this stunning card. It's wonderful that when you're done with it that it can be displayed by standing it up on a piece of furniture too! Thanks for sharing!

going to try this beautiful card tomorrow. If it looks good will post picture

What a spectacular-looking homemade card...and so darn clever! I'm going to make a bunch of these and save them for those special baby occasions! Even without the Xyron Creative Station panels, the card design template is a terrific foundation!
