Cards Too Plain???

Have you ever made a card, and in the end found that it was just too plain- too simple? That it was lacking and needed.....something?

Well here are a couple of ideas to help you "jazz up" those cards that just "need something".

1.  Grab your white gel pen and put on some faux stitching- yes- draw on faux stitching- instant pizzazz!

2.  To take it up another notch and get a 3D effect, grab your Essentials Piercing Templates and paper piercing tool, and pierce a design ( or make perfectly straight lines) and then use the white gel pen ( or black marker) to connect the dots!
