Do you know how to create Easy Do It Yourself Masks (Background Designs)?
Stampin'Up! offers one set of Masks (Pattern Party Decorative Masks), but those didn't quite fit my design for a Christmas card I had in mind. So I began thinking what I could use and Eclectic Layers thinlets came to mind....I didn't want to cut out the layer...just color it...sooooo, I used the framelit to cut out the design on a window sheet and then brayered the color on for a beautiful background with very little trouble! What do you think?
But don't just stop with this design...check out your other framelits and thinlets --see what wonderful background designs you can create with what you have in your stash!

Here are the steps:
1. Cut Real Red cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score the long side at 5 1/2 (card base)
2. Cut Garden Green cardstock 4 3/4 X 3 1/2; adhere to cardbase front with multipurpose liquid glue.
5. Using the same Big Shot sandwich as above, cut the double tree image (Cardfront builders thinlets) from Gold Glimmer paper; adhere the trees to the card front with dimensionals.
How simple was that and isn't it gorgeous? That background really adds that elegant touch.
Stamp "Merry & Bright" (Season to Sparkle stamp set) in Garden Green ink (Item #126973).
