I am in love!
The decorative masks in the current mini catalogue and the brand new catalogue (which by the way launches today!!!) are absolutely gorgeous!
YOU can create such a beautiful card using the decorative masks -all you need is a mask, ink and your imagination.
I will write everything down for you – but you can also watch the video below to see how I made this card.
You will also get to have a sneak peak at Sweet Sorbet -one of Stampin Up’s In-Colours for 2022 -2024.
Shall we get started?!
What you will need to create this beautiful card
- A mask
- Ink of choice
- Basic white thick cardstock – cut to 5½” x 8¼”. Score this at 4 1/8″
- Basic white cardstock – cut to 5 3/8″ x 4″ if you want to have an embossed background
- Designer series paper -cut to 51/8″ x 3 3/4″
- Vellum – cut to 5″ x 3 5/8″
- Adhesive sheets -cut to 4 7/8″ x 3½”
- Tear and tape
The how to do it part
This is the part where I usually skip to the video. SO, if you’re like me -you can click on the video below:
Otherwise, follow the instructions below carefully.
If you have decided that you’re embossing the basic white cardstock, then you will need to glue that onto the cardbase.
The next thing is to glue down the designer series paper you chose. I glued mine down at an angle for some interest.
You will then need to place the adhesive sheets onto your vellum (if you’re not sure how this is done, go up to the video and watch).
I then placed the vellum at an opposite angle to the designer series paper.
The next thing is to create the masked pattern.
I really think you should just watch the video for this step!
It’s so much easier than trying to explain it in words.
Once you’ve done all the mask work – you can then put a little bit of bling onto the card front.
I like using the gold twine for things like swirls.
Adhere dimensionals onto the back of the masked image, and then position over the swirls.
You’re almost finished making this beautiful card using decorative masks!
Just stamp the sentiment, glue that down and there you have your card!
