Wednesday Dig it Out and Use it Up #2!


Happy Wednesday! Hump Day, thank goodness! You may remember last Wednesday I started the Wednesday Dig it Out and Use it Up! challenge. Of course, now I'm not sure how appropriate the "Use it Up" part is as we don't really "use up" or stamps, I guess I was thinking more of my paper and ribbon hoarding, but I like the way it sounds, so I guess I'll stick with it anyway!

I had started working with masking and circles using my Coluzzle last weekend for this project I showed on Monday. I ended up going a different direction with that one, but when finished I started working on this project. I pulled out the Tres Chic background, which I hadn't used since this card last August. (I know, I know, please tell me I'm not the only one who hasn't picked up a certain stamp in 8 months?!)

Anyway, to make the mask, I cut a circle out of regular copy paper using the largest ring of my Coluzzle circle template. Then I used temporary adhesive to stick it down to the card front. Lastly, I inked up the background stamp and stamped the card front over the template. When finished, pull the template off and voila, you have your masked circle!

The whole card is oversized at 5"x7". I think I'm going to add some photos inside and use it as a Mother's Day card for my grandma. If I do that, I'll have to redo the "spine" with some jumbo eyelets probably and maybe run the ribbon through them. The glittery heart is just like the one I posted on Monday, I ended up changing colors on that project and had the heart left over. Waste not, want not! lol!

Hope you have a great Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
