How to Make 4 Havana Nights Cards

January 25, 2018

Do you love the colours in the new Havana Nights collection? They are so tropically colourful and I am a colour lover, are you?   The Havana Nights collection makes me think of what it would be like to live on an island…soaking up the sun rays all day by the pool and at the beach, sipping coconut drinks, wearing flowers in my hair…of course I would always have a lovely tan and look amazing in a bikini as well ; )

Today I am sharing a Process Video and I’m stepping you through how I made a set of bright and cheery Havana Nights cards.  This set of four cards is guaranteed to brighten someone’s day and maybe have them dreaming about an island lifestyle too!
