Catherine Pooler Designs: 3 for 1 cards using Sweet Life set and a VIDEO

Hi everyone!
Happy Monday!
Today I am sharing 3 cards using the new Catherine Pooler Designs Sweet Life stamp and die set along with the Fresh and Fruity patterned paper. 
I started with the idea of making 3 fold card with die cut windows on the front so you are able to see the images underneath (the second panel that opens towards you), then decided to make 2 more cards using the left over images from the first card (the images that are die cut to make the window).
Watch the video below to see how these cards came to be or click HERE!
Also, just a reminder Catherine even though with smaller staff present at the club house due to COVID-19 she's still shipping orders!!
