Stampin' TIP– Stamp your greeting FIRST, then stamp the leaves around it.  If you stamp the leaves first, you might run out of room for the greeting!  And, the stamp the first leaves close to your greeting and work your way out.  That way you're not left with a small space in the middle of your card with no stamping and your stamps are too big to stamp there.  (does that make sense??!!  In my mind it does, LOL!).

This is the card we will be doing in club on Sunday and Monday!  (If you click on the bookmarks below, you can email this post or share it on Facebook…bring your friends along so they can look super crafty, too!!)


The background is different, I used the Texturz plates from the Big Shot.

And the last card I made with the Smoosh Technique is the beautiful snowflake card.
