Reverse Mask TechniqueHappy 4th!

I like to include a project for an upcoming holiday for my wonderful stamp club gals when we have our monthly get-togethers.  I also wanted to focus on some products that would be retiring TODAY (!) in my projects.  So, I used 3 retiring stamp sets on this super easy holiday card.  I used the Fundamental Phrases, Sanded and Priceless stamp sets on this project.  Not bad, fitting in three retiring stamp sets, huh?!?  To create the star, I used the Stars #2 Sizzix die as a mask, and sponged Night of Navy ink inside the largest star.  Then I stamped (again in Night of Navy) with the smaller swirl image from the Priceless set still using the die cut star mask.  That swirl reminded me of fireworks, and I thought it would be fun inside the star.  The gals had fun making this card the other evening, and not a one of them stamped the words upside down!  Hee hee!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of the project, and have a fantastic holiday weekend!
