Stampin' Up! Timeless Talk Amazing Family En Francais

Simple products and one technique work together to create a timeless greeting.

This card was created using a paper 'mask', and a few other tools (listed below). New to stamping? Check out how easily this came together.

First, create a 'mask'. This will allow you to leave a border around any stamped images or added color.

Set your mask on top of your card front and stamp a background image (or several smaller images for a collage look). Our En Fran├žais background stamp was used here.

Once stamped, add ink along the edges of the window in the mask; I used a Stampin' Sponge and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

Remove the mask and you have:

Now it's ready for trimming and adhering to a card front. I also added additional stamped images from Amazing Family (sentiment) and Timeless Talk (phone) in Early Espresso Classic Ink. If you want to try this, I suggest using bold images so that they don't get lost in the details of the background stamp.
