KSS 10 Minute Cards - Preparing the Thank Yous

Now that my 2011 Christmas cards have all been shipped off on their merry way, I am preparing my Christmas thank you cards before storing away my Kitchen Sink Christmas images for the year.

Challenge 51 is to use your KSS images to create a quick 10 minute thank you card.

My design involved die cutting a heart in the red panel and popping the red panel up with dimensionals over the white and green cardstocks.

Thanks so much for stopping by during this busy, busy week of holiday preparations. May your Christmas be filled with the love and laughter of friends and family!

One Layer Reverse Mask 10 Minute Christmas Cards

This week's 10 Minute Card was inspired by this beautiful KSS design created by Julie Masse last week. Her wonderful layers couldn't be completed in 10 minutes so I have created this one layer Christmas version of a reverse masked design.

To achieve this look, I cut a triangle shape in the center of a piece of scrap paper and taped the resulting negative triangle frame to my card front. I then filled in the triangle space with wonderful KSS Christmas images. After removing the mask, I added a gold star and sentiment to complete the cards.

This is 10 Minute Card Challenge 49 for those of you who wish to play along. The keyword is 10MC49.
