One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #42 - Layered Background with Sentiment stamp

This week, Betsy is demonstrating the layered background look using sentiment stamps. You can go here to see the video.  I used the Mat Stack #1 die and then because I do not have the layerz mats or the mega mats, I had to trace and cut because I wanted to frame the mat stack.  I stamped O Christmas tree with black ink, but stamping it off one time first.  The tree is from Merry and Bright.  The dp is Basic Grey Nordic Holiday.


  1. Very pretty, Colleen! I love how you used the technique on both layers. Very pretty card! Thanks for playing along with me this week. :-)

  2. What a sweet little Christmas card Colleen! Super job with the technique, Happy Thanksgiving ;)

  3. Great take on the technique, using both layers! I really like the background paper too.

  4. Oh so pretty, Colleen. Great card for this MIM technique.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
