English Gardens

This is a card that I located on Alison Solven's blog where she used the same sketch to make several cards with different color schemes.  This one was my favorite.  I dressed up the inside and envelope with the fern stamp.  A beautiful card without one step using the Big Shot.

Masking the Moon

I made this card a while back for a One Layer Card Challenge shoe box swap with my peeps at our Prairie Retreat in Mahomet, IL.  The challenge came from our Upline, Pam D’Urso.  Trust me, one layer was a real challenge for me as I prefer layers and plenty of them.   Susan Field, my peep & fabulous road trip buddy, dressed her’s up a bit with ⅛” Taffeta Ribbon.  When I put this card in my August Stamp Camp, I used it as a layer and added the Taffeta Ribbon.  It was voted as the favorite card of the day.

Don’t forget to use this fabulous stamp (could it be a dandelien) on the inside of your card and envelope.  Adds more WOW!

And of course, I sent this card to my good friend Elaine for her birthday so I had to stall once again on the post.

Whether it’s the moon or the sun, I love masking.
