What is Masking?

In order to achieve that look, you need to mask the first image (here the larger yellow one) and then stamp the flower and leaves next to it and around it.

You can group pretty much anything together to create a “scene” using this fun technique. In the video I show you how to make a great cookie card!

And this is easier than you might think to accomplish yourself.

What Other Elements Make This Card Stand Out?

  • An easel fold. It’s a fun way to add a little variety to your cards. You can see how to make one in this replay of one of my Facebook Live videos.
  • Lots of white space. Since you can see a good amount of rubber stamping on the bottom edges, leave lots of room at the top so the card doesn’t look “too busy”. Plus it makes your sentiments stand out even more.
  • Shaded colouring. Use our sponge daubers to add a little bit of colour to the centre of the flowers. The idea here is to not make it precise, just add a bit of shading.
  • Butterflies. The inside die cut butterfly is popped up on a Stampin’ Dimensional and is necessary to have the front of the card stand up against. It’s even more special when you dry embossed your cardstock first with the Timeworn Textures 3D embossing folder. The smaller brushed brass butterflies add some sheen and interest to the front of the card.
