A Card for Someone Special – Masking with So Suzy Stamps

February is the month of masking and I wanted to create a card for someone special that can be used as a Valentines card, but can also be send out for other occasions. My mask is rather simple. I just die cut a small square out of a sheet of Inkadinkado masking paper and placed it on top of my card base. Now I blended Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral through the opening.

After removing the mask, I added the fairy. To ensure a crisp image, I used my Mini Misti and stamped her 3 times. Fairies have to sparkle, right? So I brushed some Spectrum Sparkle in clear on top of the fairy.

The sentiment that I chose for my card was too big for the front, so I decided to stamp it to the inside of my card. I just love the font!

But I thought it is too naked, so I decided to doodle a little bit. Nothing fancy, just a frame and some circles 😛

At the end I just adhered the front to some black card stock (1/4″ wider) and added both to the card base.
