Just Believe Quick Card

This Just Believe set is such a favorite of many stampers and so easy to use, with lovely results!  Here's card #4 in the series of quick and simple cards for my class. Today's card also uses the technique of masking.
With the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, I punched a circle in a sticky note and placed it over the Very Vanilla layer.  I then applied ink through the circle with a Stampin' Sponge and removed the sticky note, leaving a "sun" image.  Next I inked up the flower and grasses stamp with the darker ink and stamped on top of that and layered this over a matching darker layer.

The bottom front of the card was stamped with another plant stamp in the same color, giving a tone-on-tone effect.  Over that came the image layer.  "Get Well Wishes" from the essential Teeny Tiny Wishes set of 24 greetings was stamped on Vanilla and punched out with the Word Window Punch then layered onto a Modern Label Punch punchout.  This was adhered to the upper right of the card.  The inside has a verse from the Curvy Verses set and a couple more tone-on-tone leaf stamps.

This is a simple card but quite effective; the masking technique gives it interest and depth.  I used two retired colors of cardstock for this card: Apricot Appeal and Dusty Durango; these could easily be exchanged for other color combinations.  One could also kick it up a notch by using more accessories such as brads, buttons, ribbons or such, but the simplicity here is elegant and met the needs of this class:  quick and simple!
