A Fun and Quick card to share

The shopping is done, the presents are wrapped and I can't bake another cookie (or eat one I am stuffed!)

I wanted to share with you a really cute and easy card to do. The stamp set that I used is being retired at the end of this month, so if you like it hurry and order it!!

I made this card a long time ago, I had planned on using it on Black Friday, but never got around to it. (This card was stamplifted from splitcoast stampers, and changed a bit) This card uses reversed masking. To start off with you will use you coluzzle and the oval template to cut an oval in a scrap piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" cardstock, making your mask. Lay this on top of your folded white card (finished size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4") and secure with paper clips. Use stamping sponge and virsamagic colors: Red Brick and Persimmon to the edges of the mask. Remove the mask. Stamp the flowers from Love and Joy stamp set with Red Brick pad over the sponged oval. Use jewel tone chalks to accent the flowers, the ink is somewhat wet and the chalk will stick. Then stamp the stems with tea leaves versamagic pad. Stamp greeting with perfect plumeria versamagic pad. Tie ribbon to complete the card.

So fun and easy you will be amazed.

If you celebrated Hanukkah I hope it was fabulous, if you celebrate Christmas may it be a blessed one and have a Wonderful New Year!
