Enjoy the Ride Carousel Horse Greeting Card

Some of the most beautiful carousels are shiny with gold. I was inspired to recreate the look and mimicked these ornaments from Mum’s tree.

The Carousel Horses Bundle comes with Two-Step Stampin’ pieces, which means you can customize your carousel and horses however you want by mixing and matching manes, flowers, and saddles. The dies will cut out each of these pieces perfectly so you can add layers and depth to your crafts. It includes greetings for birthdays and celebratory sentiments for all your friends and family. This magical set is perfect for coloring and paper piecing techniques on projects for all your horse-loving friends!
