Father's Day card using masking technique

How pretty this turned out! The masking
technique really gives it a wow factor!
It looks like you spent lots of time
making it, but only you have to know
you didn't. ;)
Simple instructions: on the Whisper
White card stock, place two long sticky
notes about 2 inches apart. Using a
sponge wedge, sponge about a half inch
in between the placed sticky notes
in a green color. I used Pear Pizzazz.
Sponge the rest of the white space in
between the sticky notes in a blue color.
I used Marina Mist.

Remove the sticky notes and stamp
the Lovely as a Tree stamp in Early Espresso
over the sponged area.

Now you can add the "dad" towards the
bottom and add some pierced lines with
your piercing tool and piercing mat. Voila!

I also added a few leaves on the inside, also
from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

This card is a flat card so it will go easily in
the mail, and it's still stunning and perfect
for the occasion!
