Today’s card in impossible! Well, it’s called an impossible card. But it’s really incredibly easy. For this one I used the new Rooted in Nature stamp set and the coordinating Natures Poem Designer Series Paper. The card base is one piece of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card stock, so it fits into a standard A2 (medium) envelope. You can write a note on the back/bottom of the card base.
