The later in December it gets, the simpler my card designs are getting! I'm really loving these reverse masking ones. Fun to do and I like the end result. Here's another version.
Colours for this one are Cherry Cobbler, Concord Crush and Old Olive for the stamping and once again, Sahara Sand for the sponging. Shimmery White cardstock again for a beautiful shimmery base.
Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled and Many Merry Messages.
These ones are easy peasy. (Waving hello Robyn.) You just grab a sheet of cardstock (I used a damaged one) and tear it in half. I use Dotto to position it onto my card leaving a gap. (I put the Dotto on the base page, not on the actual card.) Then just do your stamping. I like to finish with some sponging of a light colour - my favourite is definitely Sahara Sand. Once you're done you remove the torn cardstock and voila, a lovely panel of stamping on your card. Here's a pic I took while I was working.
In this pic I've done the stamping, about to do the sponging, then can lift off those orange bits of card, stamp my greeting and I'm done. Note - I tore my cardstock across the narrow width of an A5 piece as I was doing portrait orientation cards. Then I decided to do this landscape orientation card and just kept using the same torn pieces. Would be better really to have the torn card pieces wider than your card.
I braved the shopping centre last night to get stuck into some Christmas shopping and was surprised to have no trouble getting a park at 7.30pm. Might be an advantage to leaving the shopping to almost the last minute!
Hope your week is going well.
