You should have arrived here from ***Michele Rowley's Evergreen Memories***. If you get lost along the way, a complete list of participants is listed at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.
As you make your way through my post if you would like a larger image of any project just click on the photo.
This card was inspired by the pattern Aubrey's Invitation™ on page 81 of the Originals Card Confidence Program™.
I thought you may like to see what I did with the tag better.
Here is a close-up of the Well Wishes "focal" stamp. I was inspired to layer by the sample in Annual Inspirations.
I still had some inspiration, so I also made this card.
I was influenced by the sample in Annual Inspirations, but I made my card with some different colors and a little simpler, with fewer layers and without the twine. If you are new to masking or just cannot cut your stamps, this is the masking technique I used:
I stamped the image on a sticky note (with the sticky side on the left). Be sure to stamp close enough to the left edge so there will be some sticky on the two pieces you cut out. Then I used a craft knife to cut out the parts I wanted to be in a different color. I put the mask where I planned to stamp and stamped in Cranberry (though the slots). Then I pulled up the mask, put down the "banner" pieces to cover the Cranberry stamping and stamped in Whisper. I save my masks by sticking them to the paper insert that is with all My Acrylix™ Stamp Sets.
