Mostly Men Class – A Really Quick & Easy Stamparatus Card

The final project of the Mostly Men Class was this easy Stamparatus Card. This project was the quickest of the 6 and it’s all because of the Stamparatus. If I hadn’t added the ribbon, or the extra sentiment, it would have been completed in about 2 minutes maximum! The key to this project is using
