Project Recipe

  1. You will need a square of whisper white card stock cut down to 5″x 5″.
  2. Next you will need to make a mask from a sheet of copy paper cut it down to 5″ x 5″
  3. and then with a rectangle die about 2′ x 4″ or you can use a craft knife to cut out you mask.
  4. With the left over copy paper tear along it to make your grass and mountain masks.
  5. Start at the bottom of your project placing the grass mask a little way up add the 1st layer of mossy green ink then move the mask up and add old olive then move it up again and add the Lemon & Lime Twist ink when you are happy with the grass move on to the mountains in Gorgeous Grape. Next add the sky i used balmy Blue and Night of Navy.
  6. With out removing the mask stamp your winter tress in Early Espresso  then remove you mask.
  7. Stamp the 2 deers and your sentiment in Memento Black.
  8. Mount your card front on a 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square of Night of Navy card stock then mount this to a 5 7/8″ card.
