Masked Thanks

Hello, all! Hope you had a great weekend! How about some Papertrey Ink goodness...Today's card is another Paper Crafts magazine reject. I submitted it to the latest Stamp It! Techniques call, masking category. Anyways, I started by rounding the top corners of the card base. Then, stamped the tree trunk from Falling Leaves in Dark Chocolate. Punched a circle from a large Post It Note and used it to mask off the top of the tree. Stamped the polka dots, from Polka Dot Basics II, in Spring Rain and then removed the mask.

Stamped the leaves in Simply Chartreuse and embellished with a Harvest Gold flower button. Finished the card off with a sentiment, hand cut hills, chocolate baker's twine and a couple more buttons. Here's A Tip: To give your hand cut hills a little more pop, attach the larger hill directly to the card base and use dimensional adhesive to attach the smaller hill slightly over lapping the larger hill.

That's it from me today, have a great day!
