classy & fabulous...


This is a full reveal of my Fresh Squeezed Stamps card that posted over on the FSS blog:


I find one layer cards a challenge....so I set my mind to designing one along with using a mask.


Originally I was going to die cut a bunch of hearts onto my mask but then changed my mind and freestyle cut a lone heart.

I think it makes a much bolder statement, don't you?

The sentiment was something I decided on the last minute and I think it is a nice finishing touch.

Here's a shot of how the mask looked after I completed the card:


I'm a big fan of using the wide washi tape to hold things down.

I used the February Fresh Squeezed Stamps release



along with



I also used 

Timeless Twine


Thanks for stoppin' by!
