Four From One Mask

The theme for this weeks blog hop was to make four cards using one mask.  I will confess I was tired from a long day at work when I made the cards and I had a few smudge issues so I got a bit inventive to hide them!

Where to start? Step one was to cut and score two pieces of Whisper White card so I ended up with four cards. 


The next step was to cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card front. I then used my Big Shot and a thinlet from my Eastern Palace bundle to cut a mask in this piece of card.


Now the tricky bits! Using a small amount of adhesive or removable adhesive stick the negative of the mask on the front to one card


And the cut out piece to another card.


And then the fun part! I grabbed some stamp sets that had flowers in them and some colours I like……..

I like to mount all my stamps before I start so I can just grab them when I need them. Then you simply stamp the flowers around the border of the mask making sure to over lap the edge of the mask. 


This looks especially effective with two step stamping.  Keep stamping around the outside of the mask.  Once you are finished carefully peel off the mask. Your first two cards are almost finished…..just add a sentiment and if you were sloppy like me try to cover your smudges with some background stamping! šŸ˜


Now you should have your two masks and two blank cards.  Carefully lay the negative mask on a card front and stamp a sentiment.  Then lift the mask and place some dimensionals on the back and pop it onto the card. 


For the last card I stamped a Watercolour Wash background, put some dimensionals on my mask and stamped a sentiment. 


I really did have a lot of fun making these easy cards.  If you would like to see what other ladies in my group did with this technique click on the links below!
