I used the Painter’s Tape Technique to create this card. The layers of blue (Marina Mist, Pool Party and Soft Sky) seemed the perfect backdrop for The Open Sea stamp set. I was inspired a swap card I received at Founder’s Circle last year by Alison Solvan.
 
 
This is the inside panel featuring a sentiment from Best of Greetings, one of the 25th Anniversary sets from Stampin’ Up! If you are curious about how I made this card . . . I have a how to video for you below. Enjoy!!
