Everyday Card



This is what I call one of my ‘Everyday Cards’. It is a simpe sketch that I use regularly, I really like the texture of the torn and rolled layers of paper!

You may have noticed I have not put a sentiment on this one. I often leave the sentiment off until I am ready to send my card; this enables me to select just the right saying!
This card will be filed in my card stash box under my ‘feminine’ heading, ready and waiting until it is needed!
Tip: to get a nice white non iridescent spray, simply add some white Kaiser Paint to a spray bottle and shake!
