It is hard to pick a favorite and my mind may just change as I make these in real life, but I think I’m going with the last card example! Thank you for sharing. In the past, I’ve never been wowed over different spotlight techniques, but this one has got me super excited! They seem like relatively easy enough techniques with outstanding effects and two cards to give! As always, your the best. Can’t wait for the next video! 🌹 Ali K.
