I've got another couple of congratulations cards to share with you today now that they've arrived in the post to my team members. (Isn't it lovely to celebrate achievements.)
For today's card I've used the technique of masking with some of our beautiful big background stamps. Here are a few tips and step by steps.
I tore a piece of regular paper (grabbed from the printer) and made sure it was just bigger than my 'Congrats' greeting stamp. Place this over your cardstock then stamp your background stamp firmly. Now remove the piece of masking scrap paper.
Our new photopolymer stamps make it easy to line up the greeting to fit into the masked area.
To finish the card I trimmed this panel, added a matting layer and attached to my base card. Some rhinestones and sequins for some finishing touches.
Here's another version this time with the stylish Hardwood background stamp.
This technique/card design would be handy for any large greetings.
Happy card making.
