This project is an excellent example of just beautiful one layer card masking – easy, quick and totally versatile!
Today Colleen is sharing a project she created for us using a simple but beautiful one layer card masking technique that you can use over and over, with all kinds of themes and designs. You will love how easy this is! Let’s dive in…….
Colleen started by stamping the flowers, stem and leaves from our Happy Mother’s Day set using Color Fuse Inks from Sets #5 and #10 onto a card sized panel of white card stock.
NOTE: You may want to use a stamp positioner to create an exact match of your mask to your stamping. She then made a mask for the entire flower by stamping her arrangement again onto a piece of masking paper and cut it out with our coordinating die.
She placed her mask over her colorful stamped flower and then stamped our News Paper background stamp over the entire panel with Hearth Color Fuse Ink from Set #12.
Using the other three shades of gray from the same Color Fuse Set, Colleen blended them around the edges of the panel from darkest at the edge to lightest toward the middle.
She then cut the panel with the largest die from our Inside Scallop Frame die set. She adhered this to a white card base.A simple stamped greeting on a scrap rectangle of white card stock and few sequins and the card was done!
This beautiful one layer card masking is now even easier to create with our three brand new floral stamp sets with included masks! If you love the look of this super simple but just beautiful card making technique, check out those three sets and think about the possibilities!
