I'm always looking for that simple yet satisfying card for an occasion, whether Birthday, Anniversary, Just Because or like this card, I Miss You. I try to get ahead in my stash of cards, but that's easier said than done. You either run out of time, or space (like many stampers do) or ideas.
I came found the idea for this card on... yes... Pinterest. I may be an Pin-addict, but until it is illegal, I'm ok with it.
Using a mask made out of a post-it-note to block off the middle of the paper to place the sentiment. Then, using the Sheltering Tree bunch of leaves and a few ink pads of any colors you choose, you can make your own background. The color combinations are endless. Just make sure you stamp the lightest color first, then lightest to darkest. This seems to work out the best, and it blends the colors beautifully. The sentiment is from the Gift of Love Hostess Stamp Set. Want to be a hostess and earn free stamps? Email me and we will set up a date for a card party at your house. Or, place an order in my store for $150 or more, and you'll earn Stampin' Rewards to redeem for free merchandise.
