    Enchantment Punny Pals Card Workshop

    October is a wonderful month in the world of Close to My Heart...and I wanted to create a workshop that would help support the Share a Smile monthly special for October. During the month of October there are various products that are available to help support the charity Operation Smile.

To bring these stamp images to life, we’ve made a coordinating set of Thin Cuts dies and an exclusive card kit! The card kit includes the dies, card bases, envelopes, paper, and step-by-step instructions for creating 32 cards, and it is available at a discounted price! Create these delightful cards and use them to share smiles all around!
