    It's amazing how easy that was but she didn't explain why she blew on the stamp after putting ink on it.

    Looks lovely but the video won't play.

    Yeah, same for me. Although you can click on the close button at the top right hand corner of the video player and read the written instructions but it'd be much better if the video could play as it should. It's always easier to figure things out from video.

    All I get are ads the card directions will not play.
