Wishing You Well Card

I did this card for With Love and Affection's card challenge. I found her blog through twitter.

My paper is coming out uneven. Apparently I have been using my paper slicer wrong. I was putting to much pressure on it and I was also using a back and forth motion. I guess everytime you use it, you are supposed to go in the same direction everytime. So, my slicer is warp and my stuff comes out crooked:(

Oh honey you are too much like me and way too critical of your work! I didn't even notice the crooked paper. Just consider it part of the artisan handmade look☺

I love the card!

I just got a real paper slicer recently! I got it at a yardsale for $2! can you believe it?? it's HUGE though. I don't really know where to keep it... but I will have to give it a try soon.

I have really gotten off track with my cards. I feel so bad! I wish I had some local friends who were interested in card-making!
