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!

Online Clean & Simple Card Making Class...Day 1

Today is the first day of this online card class...we were given three sketches and two example cards made by the designers.  The first card uses the Masking technique...I cut a square 3 x 3 and centered it on the card (4.25 x 4.25)  then I stamped my background image, which just happens to be a new after Christmas on sale stamp I bought ... a Hero Arts/Basic Grey Nordic Holidays Collection...then I die cut and stamped the bell from PTI Bells & Boughs...after stamping the sentiment, I used a Sakura pen for some dashed lines...the ink is "Encore" Ultimate Metallic Gold...I was hoping it would show the sparkle and shine a little more...this is the first card for Day 1.


  1. Love your card! Beautiful masking - love those bells :)

  2. Are you already making X-mas cards for next year? LOL!
    Love those borders, they look great!

  3. ooh, love your use of the white space! I'm also a big fan of CAS cards!


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