Jennifer McGuire did a video showing this technique and I’m so in love with it I just can’t stop myself from using this technique over and over again! Marrying High Tide with Sea of Textures just seems like a match made in heaven, oh wait, that’s another set, anyway I am surrounded by so many people who are forever doing kind deeds for others and I like to acknowledge acts of kindness whether they are directed at me or a loved one.

This card is so very simple to make considering the great impact it has with the recipient opens it up, give this a try it’s so much fun.

Thanks Jennifer!!
