When stamping your own background onto the front of a card, I am always left with part of the background being stamped onto the back of my card. I hate that!!
Well I found a quick and easy solution for protecting the back of the card, Post-It notes! I just attached two notes to cover the back of the card.
If you have ever done any masking before, you will know that you have to have a thin piece or paper or film as your mask or else your stamped images don't come out crisp when stamping over the edge of the mask. Well, with Post-It notes, the stamped image is clear because these notes are so thin!!
I used an oldie but goodie stamp set along with one of our NEW stamp sets for my project: Candy Hearts and Swirly Doo Valentines. These two sets just coordinate so beautifully together.
For the sentiment banner, I stamped the swirly doo, and the sentiments. Then I cut along the straight lines, removing the shape on one side of the line. Then I was left with this cute little banner after I cut out a small triangle from one end.
To finish off the card, I just added a pretty bow using satin ribbon.
