I had so much fun with six year old Malia teaching her the art of Card Making. She created her very first Card from start to finish, learning how to cut, score, stamp, color with Stampin' Blends, add Shimmery Crystal Effects, adhering with Snail (which she loved) & Stampin' Dimensionals & Enamel Dots.
