Hi there, Wishing you all a belated Happy world card making day for yesterday.
Today I have a card to share with you. This is my first attempt at masking and it is definitely a technique I will be using again.
I have used the sketch from clp

This is also the first time I have managed to work out how to use the Martha Stewart punch around the page punches, the one I have used is aztec snowflake,the heart border punch is also MS, papers are scraps from my stash(really need to start using these up) and the stamps are magnolia  and personal impressions.

Vintage reindeer tilda

Hi all,
Its school holiday's here so I have  a day off....yay!!!
Can you believe it has taken me most of the day to finish this card that I am sharing with you today? Although I have been pretty engrossed with the Footloose movie at the same time(might have something to do with it, lol).
I have used the following sketch from the sketchy challenges

I have used magnolia reindeer tilda, personal impressions and a  docraft freebie stamps. The paper is a beautiful new pad called santa claus by my minds eye and the punches and dies are from Martha Stewart and couture creations.
