Every day is a new beginning

Hi there!

Just a quick card to share today for 2 challenges:

Less is more  ~ new Beginnings (one layer)

&

Just us girls ~ stencil




I started off by printing the sentiment.

I then masked the area below the sentiment as shown in the photo.

I used a die cut ( leaves ) as a mask (the positive of the die cut ) , and then I used the negative of the die cut as a stencil.


Looks messy and complicated ??? I hope not... because it was so much fun to remove all the masks and tape and see the end result!

Here's the sentiment:




We'd love you to display our banner





Thanks for looking!
