A Birthday Card


This week's MIM, Betsy Veldman shows us how to combine 
Stenciling and Masking, for our one layer cards.


Betsy's video was a simple way to create a card that will 
easily go through the mail.
I have a recipient  in mind for this card. Her birthday is on Thursday.
It just might make it!

Stencil make with a die from Nostalgic Notions.
Ivy & Bloom
Sentiment: Swoosh
Inks: Ranger: Distress Oxide Broken China & Cracked Pistachio
PTI Inks: Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Pinefeather

Play along with Betsy & PTI here, on Nichole's blog:
