Simple cards






 Hi there friends, I had been busy  playing with my masks a while ago and had a pile of bits and pieces and was wondering what I could do with them. Don't you find that sometimes you have a good time trying things out and generally just playing and experimenting with no real plan or purpose. I decided that these backgrounds would make great simple cards so that's what I did, I used 6 x 6 card blanks and made these cards. All they need is the addition of a sentiment and they are ready to go. Perfect for when I need a card in a hurry! The card above is made with my Shoal Positive mask.

 I just used a selection of different background "scraps" and cut and layered a selection of On the Edge die cut shapes for this card.

 I love this Funky Butterfly and shaped it and added it to the page with foam for dimension.
This card used my Winged Pattern and Shoal Negative mask and I added some JOFY flowers. I like the way the Shoal mask looks like grasses in the breeze when you apply it sideways.
So, just some fun ways to use up those simple backgrounds and pages that you make.
Hope you like them.
My masks are available from The Craft Barn HERE and HERE, if you are interested as well as other Tando Creative Stockists!

These are fabulous Neil... I never would have thought of doing that with them :-)
Yes - I definitely like the 'grasses in the breeze' one too - that's beautiful :-)
