I love clean and simple, and here’s a clean and simple Trendy Trees thank you. I love clean lines and lots of white space in clean and simple designs. The extras in this simple card come from the funky design of the trees, the bold chevron design in the paper and the scored lines in the background.
Technique: Punch Masking – I stamped the middle tree top first. Tip: Always stamp your foreground image first. The tree top was stamped on a post-it note and punched out with a 1″ circle punch creating a mask. I covered the middle tree with the post-it-note mask and stamped the tree tops beside it.
The Trendy Trees stamp set will retire at the end of the month and the Summer Smooches paper will be available again June 1st when the new catalog comes out.
