A little about the card from Jess:

My favorite part about card making is experimenting with all of the new products available and coming up with a new technique! On today's card, I used the Simon Says Stamp All Season's Tree die, Eclipse Masking Paper and Unicorn White Ink to create a super cool shadow effect on some kraft cardstock. To get all of the details, you can check out a start to finish video of the entire process!

Thank you so much to Jess for sharing her amazing creativity with us for summer school!
Thanks for visiting today! See you in class tomorrow!
