One of my favorite tools in my crafty tool kit is my masking paper.  It has so many fun uses with stamps, but you can also create some great backgrounds if you don’t have that perfect stencil.  For today’s project, I’ll be using masking paper from Inkadinkado along with nesting circle dies to create a fun snowball background for this holiday card.

The first step is to die cut a variety of circle sizes using a sheet of the masking paper.  I chose three circles and die cut each twice.  It’s best to use circles on the smaller end so they fit on the card panel.

The masking paper is a repositionable adhesive sheet with a paper backing.  After die cutting the circles, I peeled off the paper backing and adhered them to a panel of white card stock to create my background.

For the snowy sky, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink onto the card, then peeled off the circles.

Peeling off the circles is the fun part!

After trimming down my card panel, and adhering it to a white notecard, I added some cute little snowmen from Avery Elle’s Snow Fun stamp set along with a sentiment and die from Simply Said Bright.  I used some vellum for the shadow background of the word die which I thought went well with the snow theme.

I thought the snowmen were perfect to fit into the little circles and gave lots of movement to the card.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
