Masking Save

Today I decided to play along with Just Us Girls #569 which is all about masking.

Whilst I was making my card and had almost finished my masked panel, I dropped my green ink pad across the card.

Not wanting to waste all the masking that I’d done, I decided to fussy cut the masked piece and then mount it onto a lightly embossed panel with a few extra floral elements and a sentiment.

I used Stampin Up ‘All Things Fabulous’ stamp set and inks in Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Highland Heather and Old Olive. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up ‘So Sentimental’ stamp set which has some great matching dies.

The finished card.

I’m also linking this card up to the Library Challenge #75.

Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your day.
