MIM #20

I wasn't sure if I'd get a chance to play along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday this week. The technique featured this week was reverse masking and looking at my stamps, I didn't think I had anything that would work.

Then, I got my PTI orders in the mail and decided that my new Postmarks set would work very nicely for making some stamps with this technique.

I made this two cards last night, after my family had left. We'd had such a great time yesterday together, especially at the mini-golf course that my brothers treated my family to. So I wanted to make them each a thank you card, to go along with the copies of photos I'm giving them.

Both cards are similar and made with the same products: PTI kraft cardstock, Mendhi Medalion stamp set, Postmarks stamp set and Think Big Favourites #5.







Thanks for looking!

Wow!! Gorgeous cards. Love the combo of colours and layout. Can't wait to get my hands on my prize of Mehdni medallions and will definitely be ordering the new Think Big sentiment set! :) Thansk for the inspiration.
