The House That Stamps Built: Pick of the Week

 My turn to share Pick of the Week at The House That Stamps Built and I was inspired
 by a video by JenniferMcGuire on Creative Masking and as soon
 as I saw it I pictured it with Repeat Impressions snowflakes solid lg. and sm.
 and had to try it.

My brief explanation of how to do this.
Cut a piece of white card stock to 7" by 8 1/2 ", scor at 
3 1/2" and set aside.
Cut a piece of white card stock to  3 1/2" by 8 1/2", cut
a second piece out of scrap paper.  The scrap piece die cut 
a circle 2 1/4 " towards the bottom as shown.  Save the circle.

Set the Scrap piece over your good card stock. Place circle with temporary
adhesive on the back in the circle and remove the rectangular piece, as below.
Use medium of choice to apply Distress Oxides to your card.  Stamp small
snowflakes with VersaMark ink.

Remove circle and place rectangular piece with the circle cut out of it over the 
card with temporary adhesive on the back of it.  Stamp and emboss 
snowflake.  Remove mask, die cut, put on 3 1/2 by 8 1/2" piece of card stock
 and embellish as desired.

  The stamps I used are discounted this week at
