Week 2, card 3 Holiday card boot camp - reverse masking

     I made a card similar to this one at a class by Sue Madex earlier this year.  She showed me the reverse masking technique (Jennifer used a variety of this technique in the Holiday card boot camp today).   I added some diamond stickles to the snowflakes for some shine. 
     I also like the way Jennifer adds hemp twine bows behind design elements on her cards.  I didn't have any cardstock in the same mid-blue as on the middle-sized snowflakes, so just like in Jennifer's tip, I used Distress Ink to make the border tthe same colour as the stamped snowflakes - perfect match!

  2. Hi Michelle - I always love to stop by your blog, because you have a heard start (time wise) on your Camp Cards, both of which are stunning today!!

    I am wondering if the snowflakes stamps you have used are from SU? I have a set that looks very much like these and now you have inspired my to digi it out and ink up those stamps again!!

    Thanks for another day of fabulous inspiration!
