Smelling the Salt of the Ocean!

WildCard Ocean wm

Hi everyone, thanks for dropping by today!

Today I am sharing a card I created some years back with you all. After a bit of thought I have decided not to create a card just to fill a hole in my blog postings … I have already created over 300 cards this year and we are only up to August, so I really don’t need to make a card just for the sake of making a card. I still like to post everyday at this stage so I have decided to go through my files and post cards I made previously which I haven’t posted on my blog before.

My card I have for you is one called a “Wild Card” it was created using a templates which were popular about 10 or so years ago called Wild Card or Weird and Wacky Cards which basically meant a card that was an odd shape. They were lots of fun to make.

For my card that I have for you today I used a beach theme, stamping various images randomly over the front portion of my card as background, with one as the main image. The sentiment is stamped on vellum, torn along the edges and then attached to my card using eyelets.
