No Masking the Fact


VLVS! stamp Double Masks With Fan – Item 16258
2 sheets Kromecote A2 Cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

Recently one of my friends moved to Hawai.  When I saw this series of Masquerade stamps I immediately knew they’d be perfect for a ‘Missing You’ card.
I wanted a chocolates in a porcelain dish ambience, so I went with glossy white Kromecote paper, with dark, chocolate-y brown, and cream-colored ribbon.
One sheet of Kromecote I folded into a card.  I cut two pieces from the other sheet–one just a little larger than the Maquerade stamp, another piece about 1/2 inch larger.

After stamping the image on the smallest piece with Timber Brown StazOn, I taped it to the larger piece, and bordered it with the brown ribbon.  I stuck this whole assemblage onto the card with more Miracle tape.

I finished off by trimming the card with the Woven Check Ribbon, sticking on the white flower and more of the brown ribbon.  The flower was a bit too white, so I brushed it lightly with the Timber Brown StazOn.
The inside of the card reads ‘There is no masking the fact that we’ve missed you!’
