“Friends” Card Featuring Glitz Vintage Whatnots & Melissa Frances Resin Embellishments

Pre-made embellishments are a fantastic way to pull together a beautiful card in a matter of minutes!  When I was first conceptualizing this card, I started with the vintage-style card from Glitz Design’s Whatnot collection.  The layout of the card just flowed from there.  I tried to keep my embellishments relatively simple as I didn’t …
