Blast from the Past
We're getting right down to the wire. Today's bingo piece is the star...and you're playing for a complete card kit that includes stamps, ink and cardstock pre-cut for your creative fun. Anyone lucky?
This card is something I whipped up quickly...because I found a scrap that I had stamped long ago with A Rose is a Rose. I love how two-step stamps give such a rich, layered look. TIPS: Always start with the solid image in the lighter color, and build from there. Use a post-it to mask and layer flowers over leaves, etc.
Since I had already done the hard work of stamping, the only thing I did to make this card was carefully cut out the flowers using my Paper Snips, and adhere them to a card base. The trimming is a little fussy, but well worth the effort, I think.
For those of you celebrating, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
