Gentle Wishes Card by Jennie

Hello and welcome!

Jennie here with you today and I thought I would share a quick "wishes" card using some of the smaller Calico Craft Parts pieces and some simple techniques.

I took a piece of cardstock 4" x 4" and layered it onto a slightly larger piece of craft card using my sewing machine (which was out and not buried under a huge stash of knitting wool!). I then layered this onto a 6" x 6" card before adding any of the embellishments.

I have only dabbed white acrylic paint on to the key, tag and butterfly - I like the MDF brown showing through here and there. I have edged each piece with a gold pen for definition.

I love these little tags, they work so well on smaller projects and I have a little pack of small sentiment stamps which I know will fit on them. It is always handy to have some non-definitive cards that can be used for birthdays, thankyou's or just because.

Add in a couple of small flowers and a bit of ribbon ....... card finished!

The card is quite robust and although it will incur the larger post fee at least it should survive!

Thank you for joining me today and I look forward to being back at the beginning of next month with a new project.
