What’s black and white and red all over? Today’s card made using the Epic Celebrations Sale-A-Bration stamp set. It’s perfect for a teenager, or anyone who feels like a teenager, or just someone who really likes Chuck Taylors. It’s a great way to let someone know you think they’re awesome. It can be used for a birthday, thank you, or just because. Tuck it into someone’s lunch, briefcase, backpack, or even under their pillow.
